Overview

Review of the "Batch STII data for AvaFile" export feature in SalesTax II

Environment

SalesTaxII 

Resolution

  • eginning with SalesTaxII 5.5, SalesTaxII customers can take advantage of Avalara’s managed returns service through the use of the AvaTax Returns data Export feature. In SalesTaxII, additional data is captured at tax calculation time for use by the managed returns service.

  • This option exports tax return data in a format that can be loaded into the Avatax Returns admin console.

  • To facilitate the transfer of data between the host System i (where SalesTaxII resides) and the Avalara tax service (where Avalara managed returns resides), SalesTaxII uses the Integrated File System (IFS) for storage of the resulting AvaTax Returns data.
