Sage Sales Tax by Avalara does the heavy lifting

Manage the end-to-end tax compliance process natively in your ERP

Sage Sales Tax, powered by Avalara, is one of the only tax compliance solutions that integrates directly with Sage ERP software.

Let your ERP do the work of managing exemption certificates

Enter certificate numbers into a customer record where Sage Sales Tax keeps certificates on file in your ERP and easily accessible at the point of sale.

Improve rate accuracy and reduce returned shipments 

Sage Sales Tax verifies addresses with rooftop accuracy across more than 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.

Reduce audit risk by validating all your tax-exempt sales

Sage Sales Tax ensures your tax-exempt customers are keeping their certificates up to date. When certificates expire or become invalid, the system provides an alert at the time of sale.

Easily manage taxability rules across a vast product inventory

Sage Sales Tax maintains a vast catalogue of product taxability rules in order to apply the appropriate tax across thousands of SKUs.

Better assess tax obligations in each state

Sage Sales Tax 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.

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

Sage Sales Tax lets you apply a single tax profile to each customer. That means the appropriate tax is applied whether they purchased through your web store, a POS system, or direct sale.

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.
