By default, Avalara AvaTax will calculate Florida Discretionary Surtax tax at the item level and not the invoice level, as this is the general rule when calculating this tax for Florida.
- For Example: You sell 2,000 1 pound bags of rice for $3 each. Invoice shows Qty of 2,000 at $3 each. This invoice does not have a single item valued over $5,000, so the Florida Discretionary Surtax will not be applied.
- You sell a pallet of 2,000 pounds of rice for $6,000. Invoice shows Qty of 1 at $6,000 each. This invoice has a single item valued over $5,000, so you may see that the Florida Discretionary Surtax is applied and that the county tax rate is only applied to the first $5,000 of the line item.
- This is directly affected by the quantity of the line item itself as well.
