Should I turn off Nexus to prevent taxes from calculating?

Overview

You need to make all transactions exempt for a period of time and want to know if turning off (deselecting) Nexus,  is a good option to prevent tax calculation.

Environment

Avalara AvaTax

Resolution

 

Note: Removing nexus makes transactions show no tax calculated because nexus was not selected (non-nexus), rather than a product based exemption for a tax holiday, or as sales to tax exempt customers. When nexus is selected again, to ensure that tax would not be calculated on any sales during the short unneeded period, you have to select a start date after that time. This means if you need to process any returns dated prior to the new nexus start date, they would not have tax, because they would predate the new nexus start date.
