Validate an Address

Quickly validate one address or many addressesHoverTT.png at once in order to ensure that the address is formatted correctly for AvaTax to calculate tax accurately. Validate a variety of addresses: your company's addresses, your customers' addresses, and your vendors' addresses.

Validate an address

Before you validate an address in AvaTax for Accounting Seed for Salesforce, ensure that the Enable Address Validation and Verify Validations are enabled in the Avalara Settings page. To validate an address, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Accounts and click the account whose address you want to validate.
  2. In the Account Details page, type the address and click Validate Billing Address to send the address along with the validation request to AvaTax. The address is validated by AvaTax and the Address Validation page is displayed. In the Address Validation page, both the Current Address and the Validated/Standardized Address are shown.
