How it works with QuickBooks

Rates are calculated “behind the scenes” in QuickBooks and are automatically applied to the invoice. Reports are generated on-demand, and invoices are synced seamlessly for filing on the back end. AvaTax applies US sales tax and VAT calculations as the transaction takes place via a secure, encrypted internet connection. AvaTax calculates accurate sales tax based on the details given in the invoice. After saving the invoice in QuickBooks, AvaTax calculates and adds the sales tax line to the invoice, validating the customer address before calculation.


Avalara AvaTax helps thousands of customers accurately calculate sales and use taxes based on up-to-date tax data. AvaTax provides 580+ integrations with the most commonly used business applications including ERP, POS, Ecommerce, Billing and CRM, to support quick deployment. AvaTax also handles VAT, GST, and other transactional taxes for millions of products and services across thousands of tax jurisdictions. The solution also supports connectivity to custom applications with a well-documented and robust developer toolkit. AvaTax’s cloud-based software is easy-to-use and fast-to-implement, ensuring a rapid return on investment.

How exactly does AvaTax calculate my sales tax?
AvaTax validates the origin and destination addresses on your invoice, then converts these addresses into longitude and latitude to determine their precise location on the globe. We determine the state, county, city and special tax jurisdictions that apply to your transaction and we apply the appropriate tax rules and rates to each line of your invoice to get a final tax result. AvaTax excludes states where you don’t collect tax and recognizes tax exempt customers and sales.
