Overall Satisfaction with Avalara

Moroccanoil uses Avalara Avatax to determine the sales taxes to be charged on our e-store orders. State sales taxes are very complicated in the USA and Avalara Avatax automates this process for us! Moroccanoil also uses Avalara's returns service to complete and submit our various state sales tax returns. This is very helpful as well and ensures we are tax compliant. I recommend both of these services to companies who need to collect sales taxes in various states.
  • Sales tax calculations
  • Sales tax returns
  • Keeps me informed of sales tax legislation changes
  • Customer service
  • Less time spent on sales tax return preparation.
  • Avalara’s expertise in sales taxes freed up my staff to work on more value added tasks.
  • Avoid interest and penalties for not charging and remitting the correct amount of sales taxes to the proper jurisdictions.
It is easy to use and run reports, add on or remove states when nexus status changes. In other words, if your company starts having a presence in a new state it is easy to flag that state so that you can start charging sales tax for sales there. Similarly, you can easily unflag a state when you no longer want to charge sales tax somewhere.
  • We also use Avalara for managed returns filing.
Well suited for managing US state sales taxes in many states. Not really necessary if you only sell in one or two states.
