Added support for tax rates in multi-address checkout. Added better support for subtotal with and without tax. Added tax detailed summary (rate by jurisdiction) if enabled in admin. Improved tax lookup caching. Changed MySQL table creation to use "ENGINE" instead of "TYPE" (previously fixed in version 2.2.4, but MagentoConnect never hosted that package).

This extension integrates Magento with AvaTax, a tax service provided by Avalara. This will replace existing Magento-based, zipcode tax calculation with the more complex and centralized rules AvaTax provides.

Getting a blank admin page after installation on 1.8

How to configure gift cards tax free?

We have two gift cards that should not be taxable, however avatax calculates tax on them. What I'm doing wrong with configuration? Tax Class for Gift Options is "None", Gift card product -> prices: tax class is "None". Thank you for your help
Asked by: uladzislau
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.

Tax by Product?

Some of our products are taxable products and some are medical goods, non-taxable in most states but not all states. Can this system be configured on a product basis instead of a customer basis? Thank you.
Asked by: jelstner3p
Absolutely! Avalara has System Tax Codes (by item) for Pro Subscribers or Basic Subscribers can create custom Tax Codes. Your Avalara Implementation Consultant will assist you with this process during setup.

Admin orders error

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.

Are all international taxes covered?

I need to know how taxes are managed by a small business registered in HK shipping across the globe?
Asked by: Helendigiacomo
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.

Can I charge sales tax for in-store pickup?

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?
Asked by: smcstore
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.

Compatibility with Magento EE 2.0.2

Hi, We have been helping a client to upgrade their online store from Magento 1.14.0.1 to Magento 2.0.2. They had been using Avatax for tax calculation in Magento 1.14.0.1. We would like to know the compatibility of between Avatax and Magento EE2.0.2 and if there is any upgrade path for us to migrate Avatax along to Magento EE2.0.2? Thanks, Susan

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by Tim Sabens

Sales Tax Extension for Avalara’s AvaTax is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good! The kind of service/module you do not hear about after implementing it. And that is exactly what we want!
Date published: 2014-03-26
Rated out of 5 by from 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.
