Locate Archived Returns

This article applies to:Avalara Returns

All past taxes filed through Returns are stored and searchable in the Filing Archive. Filed returns are available by the 5th of the following month. For states (RI and CA) that require monthly prepayment for quarterly and yearly returns, the returns won’t be visible in the Filing Archive until the returns are filed. View a history of your payments in the ACH payment trace.

Use the steps below to access your archived returns.
