About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by Astound

Sales Tax Extension for Avalara’s AvaTax 5 5 3 3
Simply the Best! We've been working with Avalara/Avatax for several years now and would not even consider recommending any other extension/service to our clients for sales tax processing. Aside from the extension integration being extremely simple to integrate with, what truly differentiates them from the crowd is their customer service. If there is any question at all, they are super-responsive and helpful and will hold your hand every step along the way - both with the developer and the site owner. April 3, 2014
Good! The kind of service/module you do not hear about after implementing it. And that is exactly what we want! March 26, 2014
To their defense, this extension isn't made by Avalara. And yes, I do have this extension working. There's no cron jobs need. It works great for taxing in the US. October 6, 2011

Answer: 
It's first important that you understand your global VAT requirements which can include factors such as ship-from and ship-to location as well as EU distance selling thresholds. Specific to how the taxes are managed, the AvaTax solution has VAT rates/rules and an online admin console to help you manage your requirements.

Answer: 
I’m assuming that the gift cards have not been assigned to a “Tax Code” and that is why you are getting a tax result. If no tax code is associated with a class or item, Avatax defaults to Tangible Personal Property (TPP) Tax code which fully taxes the item. You can support any required tax override or exception at the item level through a tax code. You can easily setup a tax code with a rule to support the desired result of non-taxable and map it to your gift card skus. This could be setup in your AvaTax Admin Console.

Answer: 
The AvaTax extension can leverage the Magento customer taxable or exempt flag or the AvaTax solution also gives you the ability to manage exempt customers by region (country, state, etc) which is another option for supporting exempt customer transactions within Magento. The solution allows you to centrally store all of the exempt customer data including digital copies of the exemption certificates.

No, Avalara does not currently support the ability to calculate duties or tariffs. The ability to calculate landed cost is on the AvaTax product roadmap.

Admin orders error

Avatar Image Url:: http://www.magentocommerce.com/images/avatars/uploads/avatar_26004499
Customer avatar
Hi,

When trying to place an order from the admin (MOTO) we're getting the following error:

"There was an error getting tax rates from Avalara. Please see the error log for details.
Order saving error: Bad Request."

But there is nothing logged under Sales > Tax > AvaTax Log to refer to.
Is there a setting in the config page that enables MOTO orders?

Thank you.

And basically can't do anything afterwards.
To restore the admin I have to deactivate the extension via Cpanel: app/etc/modules/OnePica_AvaTax.xml
Any suggestions?
Thank you, I appreciate your time and effort

Answer: 
Avalara provides Tax Codes for supporting taxability overrides or exceptions for specific products or services. Simply map the appropriate Avalara Tax Code to this product group and AvaTax will apply the appropriate tax or no tax at a line item level within the order.

You can use contact Avalara Support if you have any questions on setting this up.

We have been using the standard Magento method of taxing customers for billing origin so that their tax reflects the state they are ordering to, but we would like to make it so that customers may pick up their products at our store location and thus receive the sales tax for the state in which we are located. We are currently using the flat-rate shipping method as our in-store pickup, but it does not meet the need specified. Would your program allow us to charge the tax appropriately depending on what method of delivery the customer selects? Would your software be able to manage in-store pickup situations in which state tax of the store needs to be applied?

Answer: 
First, Avalara supports all of the necessary state sourcing rules where it’s origin (ship-from), destination (ship-to) or mixed sourcing rules. Second, the solution supports the necessary taxation of freight/shipping depending on the shipping method used and the state where the product is being shipped to. Finally, if your customer selects the in-store pickup option, as long as this triggers the store address during the checkout process, Avalara will calculate the appropriate sales tax based on the pickup address.
