Why am I getting an unable to determine the taxing jurisdictions error?


 You tried to validate an addressHoverTT.png and received the error message, "unable to determine the taxing jurisdictions."



Be Resolution

  • This error occurs when an address isn't in the USPS database.
  • If it isn't in the USPS database of validated addresses, but you need to use the address for calculation, in Address Line Two type, General Delivery.
  • Be sure to check both to Ship from, and the Ship to address as both can cause this error. 

Next steps

To test an address, use the basic tax calculator.
