Why are we not seeing lat and long taken into consideration when making the address validation call via the API?

Overview

We are trying to use latitude and longitude to validate addresses, but in testing it appears to completely ignore these fields.

Environment

Avalara Avatax

Resolution

You can not use lat and long to validate an address via the addressvalidation call as it is not an actual address.

You can use the lat and long as the address when making a gettax call to the service, it will pull all rates according to your nexus that are at that lat long.
