Why is the wrong county tax calculating in California?

Overview

I have a transaction in California that is from one city in California to another and Avatax appears to be using the wrong County rate.

Environment

Avalara Avatax

California

Resolution

California is a mixed sourcing state meaning that in California for intrastate transcactions (from California to California) the rate should be compromised of the following:

 

  • The State rate
  • The origin county rate of 1% plus the 0.25% rate
  • The Destination City and STJ rates.
