Why am i getting the error "the address is not deliverable" on import?

Overview

While processing a transaction or validating an address, an error is given that says " Address is not deliverable"

Environment

Avalara AvaTax

Resolution

 

  • This error can mean that the address is not valid or that the USPS has the address marked as not deliverable

    • This can happen if the address is located to close to a river or in a remote area and the USPS cannot easily deliver mail

  • Some times contacting your client to confirm their address may be required to get the correct version.

    • In some cases validating addresses before calculating tax is advisable to avoid this issue.
