Bainbridge Island, Wash. - Software-as-a-Service-based sales tax automation service provider Avalara has released the latest version of its AvaTax service, which includes features for calculating, collecting, reporting and remitting sales taxes in multiple jurisdictions.

The latest version includes Avalara's new geo-location engine, which determines the exact location within a sales tax jurisdiction and allows for end-to-end control of tax region data. It also addresses an accuracy gap in current sales tax calculation technology - the fact that a zip code or even a U.S. postal address is often not enough information to make an accurate sales tax jurisdiction assessment. The AvaTax geo-location engine uses latitude and longitude coordinates passed into a mapping engine that includes more than 11,000 taxing jurisdictions.
