AFC Tax Types

Tax Types

When a transaction is processed through the AFC Engine, a Tax Type is assigned based on the results. The Tax Type is determined by the transaction location and transaction/service pairs provided in the transaction record.

With so many Tax Types available, highly detailed and specific tax descriptions are provided for use in taxation disclosure. This is useful in billing and customer service, and simplifies tax compliance filing.

AFC allows for a change, referred to as an override, of the rate for a specific tax type and tax level in a specific jurisdiction. When overriding a tax type, the tax type must exist in the jurisdiction where for the override is to be made.
