AWARENESS: November 1, 2020 AvaTax Release Begins Compulsory Nexus for All Local Nexus Jurisdictions in Texas


To comply with an administrative change by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, Texas will become a compulsory nexus state within AvaTax accounts effective November 1, 2020. As a result, TX local nexus selection within AvaTax accounts will end effective November 1, 2020.

Customers with Texas nexus currently selected in their AvaTax account with some, but not all, local jurisdictions selected within the state will see nexus changed to include all local jurisdictions beginning November 1, 2020.

If your company’s AvaTax account has nexus selected for the state of Texas and for some, but not all, local jurisdictions prior to November 1, 2020, your account will experience this change.

If you have any questions, please contact the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.
