Reconcile and file on your own

This article applies to:AvaTax

Use reconciliation and filing reports at the end of each filing period to make sure you're ready to file your returns.

Tip icon

Reconciliation helps you see any difference between the tax we calculated and what your business application calculated (sometimes known as the variance).

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Report data is updated every 30 minutes. See the latest transactions by going to Transactions in Avalara.
  • Reconcile your transaction data each month to catch discrepancies between taxes we calculated and what your business application calculated.
  • Only reconcile after all transactions and changes for the current filing period are added to Avalara.

If you have more questions about reconciliation basics, watch our reconciliation and filing overview.

If you use Managed Returns, manage your returns filing by reconciling your transactions and scheduled returns before approving your returns to be filed each month.
