AvaTax for Lodging
Plugs in to your property management software to deliver lodging tax calculations specific to your location.
We have you covered
Consider your lodging taxes handled, whether you operate a single location or provide accommodations in multiple areas.
When counties, cities, and states update their lodging tax rates, we respond with updates to our tax calculation system.
Don’t risk it
Lodging taxes are highly localized and complex. Instead of charging your guests too little or too much, let Avalara help.
By integrating with your reservation software, Avalara Returns prepares and files U.S. lodging tax returns and remit payments on your behalf, saving you time while reducing the risk of errors that often crop up as a result of manual processes.
Reduce audit exposure
Researching tax rates on your own and manually preparing and filing returns raises the potential for human error while increasing exposure. Our automated solutions can help reduce your audit risk.
Multiple properties? No problem.
Avalara Returns consolidates your tax payments into a single transfer, then distributes the funds on your behalf.
Automated returns prep
Just review and approve the transaction data extracted from your property management software for returns preparation that’s faster and more accurate than doing it manually.
