Why are my requests to the TaxRate API returning nothing?

Overview

Based off of your online samples, I’m trying to test your service using the curl command below. I get nothing.

curl 'https://taxrates.api.avalara.com:443/postal?country=usa&postal=98110' -H "Authorization: AvalaraApiKey 38F140172**********"

Avalara Avatax

Resolution

When you log into your profile you're presented with a string that is your literal API key. What you'll want to do us post your literal API key in your requests where the request calls for it {apikey}
