How do I calculate tax for state where I do not have nexus?

Overview

I need to calculate tax for a test, but not enable nexus in the Admin Console.

Environment

Avalara Admin Console

Resolution

  • The only way to calculate tax on a transaction is to have nexus enabled.
  • What is recommended is to create a test company in the Admin Console 
  • You can also use our public free site to calculate tax, http://salestax.avalara.com/
    • Please not that this is not linked to your Admin Console so item mapping and exemptions do not apply
