How do I get Avatax to show in the Quickbooks File Menu?


You recently installed Avatax for Quickbooks, but the "Avatax" menu is not appearing in the FILE menu in Quickbooks.




  • Close QuickBooks.
  • Start Task Manager.
  • Verify QBW32.exe is not running.
  • If QBW32.exe is running, select it click End Process
  • Right click the QuickBooks startup icon and choose "Run as Administrator."
  • Log in normally and verify that AvaTax can now be found under the File menu.
