Can I import consumer use tax where I have already paid a portion of the tax?

Overview

I have invoices that I was charged tax by the vendor at the State level but I still need to pay the local taxes as consumer use tax. How can I do that on an import?

Environment

Avalara Avatax

Resolution

Using the import transactions template upload the transactions using process code 1 in column A. Use a document type of Purchase Invoice. Enter the tax already paid in column AP. Upload the file and Avatax will re-calculate the tax using the rest of the details on the import, and apply any difference to the respective jurisdictions.  After the upload you can use the Consumer use tax summary report to see the difference as a variance.
