Exemption certificate statuses

This article applies to:AvaTax

Exemption certificates in ECM can have one of several statuses:

  • Valid
    The information on the certificate has been reviewed and marked as valid. If you use AvaTax, the certificate is applied to transactions that match the certificate details.
  • Invalid
    The information on the certificate is incomplete or incorrect. The certificate cannot be used to exempt a customer from sales tax in AvaTax.
  • Expired
    The certificate's expiration date is a date in the past. The certificate is still applied to transactions that occurred before its expiration date.
  • Voided
    The exemption has been voided and no longer applies to AvaTax transactions, regardless of when they occur.
