AvaTax for Dynamics AX is not dependent on Service Packs. No upgrade is necessary.

If you are an AvaTax customer in good standing, and you suffer a negative audit finding and financial loss due to an inaccurate result returned by the AvaTax service, Avalara will pay your uncollected tax, penalties, and interest, or refund your prior 12 months’ service fee, whichever is lower. Additional limitations apply. Our guarantee is subject to the conditions in Section 4 of our terms, located at

Avalara will need an accurate and complete address in order to calculate tax. If you have the latitude and longitude (U.S. only), we will still be able to calculate tax.

Annually. If you subscribe to a 500-transaction plan, for example, you can use those transactions any time in your annual subscription term. Transactions must be used within the subscription term in which they are purchased.
