Will Avalara file a return for a place where we accidentally put nexus but never registered?

Overview

We have added a state to our nexus in error.  We have corrected the mistake, but in the interim we have collected tax from the state.  We intend to return the tax to the customer. Is it possible that Avalara would file a return for this amount before we returned it to the customer?

Environment

Avalara Returns

Resolution

Avalara will never file a return for any jurisdiction without it being entered into the Returns Filing Calendar.  Any jurisdiction that is calculating tax but has no registration information in the Filing Calendar will simply accrue until the amount is credited or the jurisdiction is added to the Filing Calendar.
