Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software delivering compliance solutions related to sales and excise tax, VAT, and other transactional taxes, has acquired EZtax, Inc., a leading provider of tax compliance solutions for the telecommunications industry.
EZtax, based in Overland Park, KS, offers cloud-based solutions that address the complex and constantly-changing telecom market, which is subject to multiple tax laws and regulations. The company’s flagship product, also called EZtax, provides telecom service providers with a fully automated tax solution for accurately calculating and filing taxes due on their services across the U.S. and Canada.

The company’s end-to-end suite of solutions is designed to effectively manage complicated and burdensome tax compliance obligations imposed by state, local, and other taxing authorities in the U.S. and internationally. Over the past decade, Avalara has developed, purchased or licensed databases containing extensive tax data and knowledge related to sales tax, exemption certificates, excise tax, VAT and other transactional taxes. This acquisition is Avalara’s latest move to broaden and deepen its tax content.
