What You Need to Schedule Returns

This article applies to:Avalara AvaTax Update

When you add or expire a return, provide our compliance team with your e-filing credentials (user name and password) and tax ID for the relevant jurisdiction so that Avalara can submit the necessary electronic forms on your behalf.

New Hampshire, Oregon, Montana, and Delaware don't have state-wide or local sales tax in any jurisdictions, and as such aren't included in the table below. For most other states, Avalara needs accurate e-file information to file your returns. Determine how to find your information by consulting the table, or contact the department of revenue for the appropriate state.

* Connecticut, North Carolina, and New Jersey don't require e-file credentials to use their online return filing systems. The Returns default form still requires an e-file username and password. Enter the following information for returns in these states:

  • User name: State registration ID or FEIN
  • Password: PIN or company name exactly as registered, including spaces and special characters

You may see a notice that the entered credentials aren't valid. This is fine, and you should still be able to save the form.
