Tax Connect: Built by Epicor, powered by Avalara

Manage exemption certificates, calculate rates, prepare returns, and more — right from your own ERP.

Tax Connect does the heavy lifting

Improve rate accuracy and reduce returned shipments 

Tax Connect verifies addresses with rooftop accuracy across 12,000 U.S. tax jurisdictions. This ensures tax is applied more accurately than when relying on ZIP codes and decreases the chance of wrong delivery.

Easily manage taxability rules across a vast product inventory

Tax Connect accesses Avalara's vast catalog of product taxability rules in order to apply the appropriate tax across thousands of SKUs.

Better assess tax obligations in each state

Track economic nexus tax liabilities in states where you're potentially obligated to collect and file. Detailed reports will alert you when you're about to trigger compliance obligations in new states.

Apply the right tax for each customer — no matter their location or sales channel

Apply a single tax profile to each customer, so the appropriate tax is applied whether they purchase through your web store, a POS system, or direct sale.

Simplify the complex methods of assessing use tax

Automate use tax in Epicor ERP. For other Epicor products, the Use Tax Import Template makes importing information more efficient.

Let your ERP do the work of managing exemption certificates

Enter certificate numbers into a customer record where Tax Connect keeps them on file and easily accessible.

Reduce audit risk by validating all your tax-exempt sales

Ensure tax-exempt customers are keeping their certificates up to date. When certificates expire or become invalid, Tax Connect provides an automated report flagging exemption certificates that need to be renewed.

Remove the manual drain of filing and remittance

Reconcile a single worksheet and pay one amount for your total tax liability. Avalara works with state and local governments to file and pay on your behalf.

“Epicor's philosophy is rather than reinvent the wheel, partner with someone who does it best and that way you can bring it to your customers in an expedient manner.”
