When I pass latitude / longitudes on GetTax requests, why do I get an error message "Geocoding error Address is incomplete or invalid"?

Overview

I am trying to get a tax calculation from lat / lon (52.545102, 13.432883) in Germany. However I am getting an error message: Geocoding error Address is incomplete or invalid.

 

Environment

Avalara AvaTax

Resolution

  • Latitude and Longitude for Germany and other international countries are not supported by AvaTax at this writing.
  • Only United "States" jurisdictions are supported.
    • US Territorial jurisdictions are not included in the coverage at this writing.
  • GetTax request using Latitude and Longitude for outside US locations cannot be geocoded, at this time, from any custom system or ERP.
