  1. Total Tax from Previous Period
    Tax liabilities incurred but not remitted before the start of the current period.
  2. Current Period Tax Data File
    Sourced from the total current gross liability total from the Import Variance report.
  3. Not Authorized to File
    Activity for which filing is deferred for future periods (this is generally arranged via a written request from your tax personnel). Detail of this balance - by jurisdiction and tax type - is provided via the monthly Not Authorized report.
  4. Tax Filed from Period Collected: Prior periods
    Amounts held in prior periods are now "released" in the sense that returns for those amounts are now filed, effective in the current period. Details for both the $4,586.10 and $5,915.56 amounts are provided in in the Liabilities Held for Future Filing report.
  5. Tax Filed from Period Collected: Current period month
    Of the total $53,926.24 current tax to be invoiced, $8,512.32 (per the monthly Liabilities Held for Future Filing report) will be held past the end of the current period, until the related quarterly or annual filings are due. Therefore, $45,413.32 incurred during the month of February will be filed across the five March filing periods.
  6. Total Filed this Period
    Represents the total tax invoiced and filed from previous and current periods, as calculated within this summary. Avalara reconciles total filed to actual cash outlays remitted in a Reconciliation of Tax Returns Filed report.
  7. Ending Balance
    The aggregate tax liability to all US taxing jurisdictions as of the end of February.
