The Avalara Java Sample Code by Avalara demonstrates REST methods of tax, get, validate, and cancel to interact with the API. Developers can implement Avalara features into applications related to sales taxes to automate compliance processes.
ValueAppeal is a service to help U.S. homeowners appeal the assessed value of their home. Over-assessed property results in taxes that are higher than they should be. This means that homeowners may be over-paying their taxes by anywhere from $500 to $1,000 or more. I wouldn’t mind keeping an extra $1,000 of my money per year going forward and I bet the same goes for most of America. If you have a website focused on real estate (did anyone mention this to Zillow?) the ValueAppeal API could augment it with compelling information.
Twitter is moving the Hide Replies API endpoint out of Twitter Developer Labs, the company’s testing ground for emerging developer services, and into general availability. Using the API developers are able to build applications that help people hide or unhide replies to their Tweets.
