What happens when I forward date a Transaction?

Overview

How is tax applied to my transaction if I set it to a future date?

Environment

Avalara Avatax

Resolution

  • If the selected Tax Date is in the future (when new rates have yet to be applied), the system uses the current rates.
  • New rates are applied on the second-to-last business day of the month.
