Avalara and Etsy Marketplace do the heavy lifting

Helps you understand where and how you need to register your business

If you’re selling throughout the U.S., Avalara can help you determine the states where you’re obligated to collect and remit sales tax, and help you get registered in those states.

Supports marketplaces that remit taxes on your behalf 

Built-in marketplace reporting rules determine, by marketplace, who remits tax (seller or marketplace).

Saves time by automating time-consuming data import processes

Avalara automates the import process of Etsy sales transaction data, which can be reviewed, sorted or edited before filing a return.

Lets you focus your time on your business, not sales tax

Avalara can create your returns based on government forms and requirements, file returns on your behalf, and even handle payment so you can focus on your business.

Puts you in control

Tracking the filing process for state returns from a single dashboard helps ensure nothing falls through the cracks. There’s no need to juggle spreadsheets or sign in and out of multiple systems. 

Supports omnichannel selling

Avalara works across the major channels you sell through (e.g., website, physical store) to deliver a seamless customer experience.
