Sales tax integration for Salesforce
Calculate rates, prepare returns, and more right from your own B2C and B2B storefront.
Avalara and Salesforce do the heavy lifting
Improve rate accuracy and reduce returned shipments
Avalara verifies addresses with rooftop accuracy across more than 13,000 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
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.
“We wanted one system that could do everything well — a few things very well — and we wanted it to be cloud-based. The teams involved with our tax compliance upgrade have been incredibly responsive, and they work great together.”

Here’s what some of our 750+ Salesforce users are saying
Avalara interfaces with our proposal program, Salesforce, as well as our GL package Microsoft Dynamics GP. With over $60 million of revenue, we would not be able to accurately and timely calculate the taxes on our proposals and invoices without Avalara.
