Why am I getting a CertCapture error on a certificate: Record has the attribute DO NOT SEND TO API


Customer's exemption certificate is not exempting sales tax. The API error reads " Not sending record to AvaTax Calc API. Record has the attribute DO NOT SEND TO API. "




  • Open certificate and click on 'Edit' and scroll down to the Attribute section

  • Click on the 'x' on the attribute to remove it

  • Click on Update Certificate

  • Go to the Certificates History tab and confirm a successful API send:  API call initiated for certificate: Success.

  • Double check and confirm that the certificate is now showing for the customer in the admin console of Avatax
