Jurisdiction begin and end dates

Each jurisdiction you add in AvaTax Update includes a begin date and an end date. AvaTax Update compares the document date of a transaction to the begin and end dates of the appropriate jurisdiction. If the document date occurs between the two dates, AvaTax Update processes the transaction as usual. If the document date occurs outside of the two dates, AvaTax Update calculates a 0.00% tax.

Change the begin date and/or end date for a jurisdiction to meet your business transaction processing needs:

  • If your business is going to establish nexus in a jurisdiction, you can set the begin date to that future date. When AvaTax Update processes a transaction for that jurisdiction, it calculates tax based on the document date. If the document date occurs before the future date you set, the tax is 0.00%. If it occurs after the date you set, it's taxed according to jurisdiction rates.
  • Conversely, if your business will no longer have nexus in a jurisdiction, you can set the end date to that future date. If the document date of a transaction occurs before the future date you set, it's taxed according to jurisdiction rates. If it occurs after the date you set, the tax is 0.00%.

End dates take effect one second to midnight on that day. For example, an end date of 12/31/2099 will end nexus at 11:59:59 PM on 12/31/2099.
