Validate Addresses

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.

At this time, AvaTax only validates addresses in the United States and Canada.

Configure address validation

  1. In the Home options list on the left side of Sage 100's main menu, go to Sage 100 > Modules > Library Master > Setup.

  3. Click one of the following options:
    • Scan and Report: Reviews and validates selected addresses, then returns a report of successfully validated address ID’s and lists any address IDs with an error message. It does not update address records.
    • Scan, Fix, and Report: Reviews and validates selected addresses, updates records with validated results, and returns a report that lists addresses IDs that were updated. The report also lists address IDs that could not be updated because validation failed, along with reasons for the failure.

    • Customer Addresses
    • Vendor Addresses
    • Customer Ship To Addresses
    • Vendor Purchase Addresses
