Introducing smarter sales tax for retail chains
Sales tax is a difficult task for retailers — you need to manually input regional tax rates, monitor tax holidays, and worry about compliance. What if sales tax was applied automatically, in a matter of milliseconds?
Through Runit’s partnership with Avalara – the premier sales tax automation provider – all Runit users gain access to dynamic sales tax calculation and a robust Avatax reporting portal, at no additional cost. AvaTax makes sales taxation “smart” by automatically applying real-time tax information to your sales checkout. This new integration helps you save time and eliminates the risk of withholding tax at the incorrect rates, by using dynamic accuracy to optimize sales tax compliance.

Avalara’s AvaTax is sales tax software that automates tax calculations and the tax filing process. AvaTax provides real-time tax codes from more than 12,000 taxing jurisdictions, which helps make sure that your sales tax is calculated based on the most up-to-date tax rules. AvaTax is designed to replace Runit’s built-in point-of-sale tax settings in the areas in which tax is a key component of the transactions.
Q: Do I need to add tax codes to all of my merchandise categories?
It is highly recommended, even if you think that the AvaTax default tax covers all your products. Tax jurisdictions will sometimes have tax free days on specific categories of merchandise.
Q: What happens when the AvaTax service is not available?
Runit’s built-in sales tax options will act as a backup for providing tax rates on your products in case the AvaTax service is not available. Runit will flag these transactions and send them when the AvaTax service becomes available. It is important to maintain Runit’s built-in option setting so that the tax applied will be as accurate as possible.
Note: AvaTax mark transactions calculated by Runit as an override within the AvaTax Admin Console transaction section.
Q: Can I use this in Runit’s OpenPro for iPad?
Yes, the AvaTax integration works with Runit OpenPro for iPad. In cases where Runit open is being taken to events in new tax jurisdictions (nexuses), you must update the AvaTax Admin Console nexus settings to ensure accurate tax calculations.
Q: Does AvaTax work with my e-commerce shopping cart?
Yes, AvaTax can e used for e-commerce transactions if you have activated AvaTax services for your website. Your e-commerce transactions will flow into the same portal as your brick-and-mortar ones.
Q: Will Emergency Sellit transactions go to AvaTax?
Yes, Emergency SellIt transactions will automatically be sent to Avatax after the upload into RunIt.
Q: Can e-commerce transactions flow into the AvaTax portal if I am not using AvaTax for my website?
Yes. If your website is integrated with Runit, you have the option of sending web sales to the AvaTax portal, enabling you to manage all reporting in one place.

“Not only is the software highly functional and packed with many informational components, the real value is that it comes at an affordable price. Add to that, the customer support that's provided is outstanding in every regard. On the rare occasions that tech support's been needed by my firm, it's been delivered in a timely manner that hasn't cost us sales, which really is what a POS system is all about.”

"When we were looking for a solution at the time as a 19 store operation we were too big for many solutions and too small for others. We found Runit fit the bill allowing us to grow from 19 to upwards of 75 locations along with our backoffice support and integrate with our Distribution Center(s) and Online Business. The ability to grow with us rapidly at times is a major plus to Runit."
