Governments everywhere create burdens for business owners by establishing tax returns that they must file on a regular basis. Business owners who operate in multiple states must often file many various forms to different agencies, all on different schedules. Avalara Returns helps these business owners focus on running their business by automating this complicated task. This is a problem that is global in scope and affects nearly every business on Earth.
