How do I change nexus sourcing in the Admin Console?


I need to force a state to calculate tax based on the Origin address, if the state is Destination based, or Destination address, if the state is Origin or mixed sourcing based.

  • The sourcing is defined by the state and cannot be changed in the Admin Console
  • Some types of sales, for example services, are generally taxed at the destination in an origin based state.
  • Your connector has the ability to use the tax schedules of AVATAX-POD and AVATAX-POS to force origin or destination sourcing.

Note: Changing the sourcing on a tax code is not recommended and is not a best practice. Avalara will not be responsible for any notices or audits by the state, if you change the tax sourcing.
