Avalara and Magento do the heavy lifting
Validate addresses and improve rate accuracy
Avalara provides address validation that verifies, corrects, and formats addresses across more than 13,000 U.S. tax jurisdictions. This eliminates the need for additional services, decreases the chance of wrong delivery, and ensures tax is applied more accurately than when relying on ZIP codes.
Provide a smooth exempt customer experience in your B2B storefront
Your customers can enter certificate numbers into their account records, which Avalara will keep on file in Magento and make easily accessible at checkout for sales tax exemption.
Easily manage taxability rules across a vast product inventory
Avalara maintains a vast catalog of product taxability rules in order to apply the appropriate tax across thousands of SKUs, accounting for sales tax holidays and tax law changes.
Better assess tax obligations in each state
Avalara's solution tracks your economic nexus tax liabilities in states where you're potentially obligated to collect. Detailed reports will alert you when you're about to trigger tax obligations in new states.
Address the global market with confidence
Avalara calculates customs duties and import taxes in real time at the point of sale and collects at checkout, reducing the risk of costly penalties, carrier surcharges, customs delays, and customers being surprised by unexpected costs.
Remove the manual drain of filing and remittance
When it’s time to file, you can 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.
Work with other business systems you already use
With 700+ prebuilt integrations, Avalara’s SaaS-based tax platform plugs into order management, point-of-sale, and ERP systems most commonly used with Magento for a full omnichannel solution. Can’t find an integration for your application or going headless? Build one with Avalara’s advanced API.
