  • Do not configure, just uninstall it.

  • Create a quote

  • Convert to Sales Order

  • Generate Invoice

Now Odoo complaints with the following traceback:

Hi! I work for Avalara. Sorry you experienced this issue with the AvaTax Connector. We'd like to help you get to the bottom of this, and have already started investigating. Can you tell us which version of Odoo are you using?
