The Chargebee-Anrok integration validates the taxable address for all new customers who subscribe with you after enabling Anrok. For customers who have signed up before enabling Anrok, Chargebee will cancel their subscriptions during renewal if tax cannot be determined. Subscriptions on the verge of cancellation can be determined using the Validate Existing Addresses feature that allows you to view and fix invalid addresses.
Under Validate Existing Addresses, select your taxable region - United States from the drop-down, and click Run Check.
During the first check that is run after the integration is configured, all the existing subscriptions' taxable addresses gets validated. Subsequent address validations will check only the addresses that are added after prior validation and not all the addresses. You can look for any possible address errors and have them fixed.
In order to validate the address, Chargebee makes a taxablity api check to validate if the address is taxable.
Note that validating addresses is not a full address validation but a taxability check.
This is a crucial step in the integration. Unless you execute this step, Anrok will not be used for automatic tax calculation in Chargebee. After connecting the Anrok account with your Chargebee site, click Go to Taxes on the Anrok app page.
Alternatively, you can click Settings > Configure Chargebee > Taxes.
Go to the taxable region - United States and select Anrok as your preferred mode of tax calculation.
