Map your items to Avalara Tax Codes in Microsoft Dynamics GP

This article applies to:AvaTax for Microsoft Dynamics GP

Some products—such as clothing, food, software, medical supplies, software subscriptions, and freight—are taxed differently depending on where they're sold. To get the most accurate rate for these items, map them to Avalara tax codes. If you don't map items to Avalara tax codes, all products and services are taxed at the standard rate for each jurisdiction.

Before you begin

  1. Review the guidelines for mapping items to Avalara tax codes if you aren't sure whether to map items in Microsoft Dynamics GP or AvaTax.
  2. Before you map an item to an Avalara tax code, enable item class mapping Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Steps

  1. In Microsoft Dynamics GP, go to Cards > Inventory > Item.
  2. Next to Item Number, select the Search icon and choose an item from the inventory.
  3. Select Options.
    The Item Maintenance Options box opens.
  4. Under Category, next to Taxability, enter an Avalara tax code and then select OK.
  5. Select Save.
