Download past returns and confirmations

This article applies to:Avalara Returns

Filed returns and confirmations are available by the 5th of the following month for you to download. If you file quarterly or annual returns that require monthly prepayments, you won't see them until the returns are actually filed. You can also find copies of your filed returns on each state's filing website.

Some states send out multiple confirmations for different steps of the process (for example, a confirmation for the return being filed and another for the payment being received), which might cause you to see duplicates of returns in your history.

  2. Select what you want to download:
    • All filing and payment confirmations for a selected filing period:
