You want to know what date Avalara uses to calculate tax.

Resolution

  • We use the Tax Calculation date
    • Most accounting systems send the Invoice date as the tax calculation date, so your transaction will show the Document date and Tax Calculation date as the same date.
    • The Tax Calculation date on a return invoice is usually the date of the original sale, so it does not match the Document date
