Avalara is a 3rd party tax provider that offers many additional benefits above our other tax methods. Avalara will provide real-time tax calculations for the shopping cart and order entry and using the Tax Code field on the product, Avalara can provide accurate tax rates for specific product types for regions that have very complex rules.
Avalara provides many advanced tax reporting features and will also handle paying your company's sales and use taxes to the appropriate agencies automatically, drastically reducing tax payment overhead. Contact your AmeriCommerce online store account manager or Avalara for more information.
