Why is the Avalara popup not opening in QuickBooks?


I have just made an estimate in QuickBooks and tax isn't calculating, and the Avalara popup is not appearing. 


Avalara Avatax


  • Exit QuickBooks
  • Open Task Manager
  • Find any open QuickBooks tasks and right click
  • Then click End process tree
  • Restart QuickBooks
  • You should see Avatax start as a popup
  • Try changing any item in your estimate to trigger a calculation.
  • You should now see the progress bar and tax calculate


Symptoms of a CB-201 error without the popup were ocurring.
