Why is there an option to choose seller's use tax?

Overview

I am setting up nexus and would like to know why seller's use tax is an option.

Environment

AvaTax

Resolution

The sales or seller's use tax option is in the nexus settings to give you the ability to choose to force the system to calculate sales tax rates across the board or allow you to calculate seller's use tax rates when making interstate transactions.
