Are jurisdiction codes unique?

Overview

We are looking for a way to identify a jurisdiction that AvaTax reports back in a tax calculation as unique.

Environment

Avalara AvaTax

Resolution

Jurisdiction codes are not all unique. For example, the jurisdiction code for Albany county in NY and Albany county in WY are both "001". There are definitely different jurisdictions (one is in NY and one is in WY). AvaTax  identifies jurisdictions as unique with a combination of the jurisdiction code and the state it is in.
