Getting "407 Proxy," error in making API call to webservice

Overview

Environment

Online (Cloud) based proxy system 

Resolution

When connecting to https://avatax.avalara.net via the AvaTax API, it checks for the proper certificates for security purposes on port 443.

 

When using an online (cloud) based proxy system, it will intercept the certificates on your behalf and pass along their certificate data to Avalara.

 

In order to allow AvaTax to reach its destination correctly, please call the online proxy provider and request that they not intercept your certificates to Avalara.
