Environment

Resolution

  • NT is non-taxable unless:
    • You create a custom tax rule making it taxable
    • You use Avalara as your SST CSP
      • NT is not SST approved, so it is taxable by default in SST states for SST customers using Avalara as their certified service provider
      • Use a product- specific tax code approved for use with SST: Select AvaTax System Tax Codes
