Run an exemption report

This article applies to:Avalara AvaTax Update

Use exemption reports to get more information about your exempt customers, and transactions where you've exempted customers from tax but don't have a current exemption certificate on file.

AvaTax begins updating report data every 30 minutes, so you may need to wait to see your most recent transactions in your reports. Go to the Transactions page for up-to-the-minute activity.

Learn about Reports in AvaTax.

To run an exemption report:

  1. Go to Reports, and select Data export
  2. Select the type of report you want to run in the Report dropdown
  3. Fill out the required fields. Once you've set up your parameters for the report you want to run, select Generate report.
