Overall Satisfaction with Avalara

The Tax Department utilizes Avalara for sales tax return compliance and exemption certificate management.
  • Accurately files tax returns.
  • Validates exemption certificates.
  • Customer support.
  • Legal entity management.
  • State tax rate update communication.
  • I no longer have to manage state and local tax rate changes and update them in my systems.
  • Tax return notice tracker and management are great.
Planning ahead and working with internal and external Avalara advisors.
  • Navision
  • Salesforce
  • Zuora
Pretty easy on the Avalara side and more difficult with internal ERP systems.
Well supported and ease of navigation within the software package.
Managed return filing has assisted at previous employers with amended returns. We are currently assisting with exemption certificate validation and importing.
I haven't utilized other software packages for sales and use.
More appropriate for entities that have tax compliance requirements in numerous states. Also if you have tax-exempt or reseller customers.
