Avalara AvaTax is a cloud-based software that provides the latest sales and tax calculations to your shopping cart or invoicing system at the point of purchase, while accounting for the following:

  • Tax rates for each state, county, and city.
  • Laws, rules, and jurisdiction boundaries.
  • Special circumstances like tax holidays and product exemptions.

When calculating taxes, Avalara takes the items’ warehouse addresses into account. Therefore, each order item you calculate a tax for, must have a warehouse assigned. To learn how warehouses are assigned to order items by default, see Avalara: Warehouse assignment to order items.
