AvaTax API 19.6 Patch Notes

  • Jun 17, 2019 | Qijing Yu

This article is about the June 2019 monthly update to the AvaTax API.

Sandbox https://sandbox-rest.avatax.com 2019-06-12                   
Production https://rest.avatax.com 2019-06-26                


Sandbox testing window

The AvaTax release schedule includes a preview period during which time the latest software is available for integration testing in the AvaTax Sandbox Environment two weeks before launching to production. If your engineering team would like a sandbox account for integration testing purposes:

  • Development and Solutions Partners (DSP), please contact your Business Development Manager.
  • Avalara customers, please contact your Customer Account Manager or open a support ticket.

Partner Integration Certification API

If you write an integration with Avalara APIs, this API will be your friend. It tests 17 scenarios to give you a detailed examination of your integration completeness. When a scenario examination has failed, the API returns a detailed message explaining why. It's important to continue testing this API throughout the development of an integration, until the endpoint returns a Success tag. 

Multi-Tax enablement in TaxContent API

Previously, Tax Content API only supported SalesAndUse tax type scenarios. In this release, we’re enabling Multi-Tax content into API results so partners can trigger UnitOfBasis, TaxSubType, and Parameters results with Item-included TaxContent API calls. And in the next release, we’ll enable TaxApplicationLevel results that indicate whether a TaxOnTax calculation has occurred.

Sales tax rates, rules, and regulations change frequently. Although we hope you'll find this information helpful, this blog is for informational purposes only and does not provide legal or tax advice.
