Download jurisdiction codes

This article applies to:AvaTax

Every tax jurisdiction in AvaTax is assigned a unique jurisdiction ID, code, and name. AvaTax uses these values to identify tax jurisdictions and apply the correct tax. They're useful in states like Colorado, where a business may reside in multiple local and special tax jurisdictions.

We call our unique jurisdiction identifier a juriscode. Use it in the JurisdictionCode column when importing custom tax rules.
