FAQ

Most Avalara customers use AvaTax to both calculate and save documents (like completed cart orders, invoices, credits, and returns, for example) for filing tax returns and audit defense. If you use AvaTax for this purpose, it’s the final document that is most valuable to you – so that is how we measure your usage. Other customers just need AvaTax to calculate sales tax or validate addresses – so for these accounts, we have a formula that translates sales tax calls and address validations into “documents” for billing purposes. (You’ll find a complete description of our usage model at http://www.avalara.com/terms/#3. )
Annually. If you subscribe to a 500 Document Plan, for example, you can use those Documents any time in your annual subscription term. Documents must be used within the subscription term in which they are purchased.
You can upgrade to a higher plan at any time by contacting your Customer Account Manager or the Customer Contact Center (877) 855-8622 . If the number of extra Documents is small, you may decide not to upgrade and just pay a fee for the extra Documents you need. Avalara will charge you monthly for any Documents in excess of your annual plan at the overage rate associated with your subscription plan.
