Why am I returning an Unable to connect to remote server error when trying to send a GetTax request to our sandbox?

Overview

I'm trying to debug code to hit the Avalara tax service and it doesn't work today. Is our license expired or are the services down?

Environment

Avalara Avatax

Resolution

Please be sure that when you are sending GetTax calls to the service via REST API that you are using POST method and the following URL:
 

For development,

https://development.avalara.net/1.0/tax/get


For production,

https://avatax.avalara.net/1.0/tax/get
