- Enable Address Validation: If you disable address validation, AvaTax Update uses the customer's ship-to address as entered to calculate the correct sales tax. Sales tax might be calculated incorrectly if this option is disabled.
- Optional: Save Transactions to AvaTax: If this is not enabled, transactions are not committed to AvaTax.
- Optional: Enable UPC Code as Item Code: Select to send a UPC instead of an item code to AvaTax. Using this feature may trigger additional fees. Talk to your Customer Account Manager (CAM) for more information.

- Optional: Disable AvaTax Process Builders: Enable to disable all AvaTax process builders at once rather than one at a time.
