Get Started with Avalara AvaTax

Webinar description

This webinar is intended to get you up and running on AvaTax. We'll walk through your first log-in to configuring your tax profile. Setting up your sales tax profile is your first step in setting up AvaTax. This is your opportunity to tell AvaTax when, where, and what type of sales tax to calculate. The more accurate your company profile is, the more accurate of a tax calculation you will receive.
