Why am I getting an in use error when trying to delete a tax code in the admin console?

Overview

I am getting an error that says in use when trying to delete a tax code in the admin console.

Environment

 Avalara Avatax

Resolution

  • You can delete a code only if the rules and item mapping are not using that tax code in your account
    • Go to Organization >Tax Rules > change any rule with the code to use a different tax code
    • Go to Organization > Items > change any item using that code to use a different tax code
