Avalara, cloud-based sales tax and compliance automation technology provider, has introduced a free version of Avalara TrustFile, a new sales tax reporting and filing solution for online sellers.

TrustFile helps ecommerce sellers and online small businesses quickly and accurately determine their sales tax filing requirements across the more than 12,000 tax jurisdictions in the United States.

“A few cloud-based services exist to help small ecommerce companies with the pain of handling sales tax reporting requirements, but at a cost,” stated Webb Stevens, head of product at Avalara. “We’re pleased to eliminate this obstacle by providing our TrustFile solution free of charge. It’s our way of helping budding ecommerce businesses get a foothold in a risk-free way.” 

With TrustFile’s detailed tax reporting information, online sellers can determine exactly where, when and how much to file and then store a record of their sales tax history securely in the cloud.

TrustFile supports Fullfilment by Amazon sellers, with sales tax collection requirements based on Amazon’s business presence in states or municipalities where a seller’s customer may reside, as well as PayPal.

“Establishing and running an ecommerce business is hard enough without the worry of when and how to file your sales tax,” stated Stevens. “Avalara TrustFile eliminates the worry by making the entire process straightforward.”
