How can you make a customer exempt for a Federal Credit Card with Avatax?

Overview

I have a customer that is exempt for a Federal Credit and does not actually have an exemption number or certificate. I need to reflect this with Avatax

Environment

Avalara Avatax

Resolution

Because this is not an actual exemption certificate the best approach would be to set your ECMS settings to optional and Set your customer to Exemption reason/entity use code A for Federal government within their customer maintenance record in your accounting software.


This will make them not calculate tax when invoiced even though they have no exemption certificate associated with them.
