Avalara says the connection to ChatGPT allow users to ask the platform to calculate and research sales tax rates based on their location. Users don’t have to be Avalara customers and the plug-in does not provide access to Avalara’s full suite of products.
Users with ChatGPT Plus accounts can install the Avalara plugin from the ChatGPT store. After that is installed, users can query ChatGPT for sales tax locations or calculate tax on a specific sale and ChatGPT will chose when to use the plugin based on the question and conversation.
Currently, the plugin is open to ChatGPT Plus subscribers in the Unites States and will be rolled out to other regions at some point.
