Do we have to upgrade Avalara AvaTax when we upgrade QuickBooks?

Overview

You're upgrading to the newest version of QuickBooks Desktop and you want to know if you need to upgrade to a newer version of AvaTax.

Environment

QuickBooks Desktop

Resolution

  • Avalara automatically updates the AvaTax service, so that's something you never have to do
  • You may need to update your AvaTax for QuickBooks Desktop connector if your company isn't using the latest version
    • Newer versions of the AvaTax for QuickBooks Desktop connector are compatible with all newer versions of QuickBooks Desktop
  • The AvaTax for QuickBooks Desktop connector must be installed on every workstation that uses AvaTax service to calculate tax. Re-install if the program is removed in the QuickBooks update process

Next Steps

If your company isn't using the latest version of the AvaTax for QuickBooks Desktop connector, we recommend updating even though it isn't required. That way you have access to the latest features we've developed.
