How do I cancel my Free Trial?
Your free trial will automatically expire after 60 days. No action required. We do not have any credit card on file for trial customers, so you can simply let the trial expire.
Is the Free Trial available to businesses outside of North America?
The AvaTax trial is available to businesses globally; however we require a U.S. or Canadian address to initiate your trial account. This address is used to accelerate on-boarding and activate your first active tax jurisdiction. You may edit these settings after you start your trial.

I need help determining where I am required to collect sales tax. What resources does Avalara offer?
Avalara has a variety of resources to help you better understand your sales tax obligations. A good place to start is our sales tax nexus resources page on Avalara.com.

If you're not sure if your company has nexus in a specific country or U.S. state or territory, speak to your tax professional.
Where can I find information about tax rates?
Avalara’s sales tax calculator and rate lookup is a good place to start. This calculator returns sales tax rates based on geolocation, which is more accurate than rates based on ZIP codes, states or counties alone.
