Does Avalara recognize exemptions as applicable in other states which accept out of state exemptions?

Overview

You have a customer who is exempt in state A and makes purchases in state B, where they have not provided an exemption to you. You see that the state B accepts exemptions from out of state and you want to know if our service will apply the state A exemption in state B.

Environment

Avalara AvaTax

Resolution

  • The service only recognizes exemptions in the state where they are listed.
  • You have to add a state B exemption for our service to recognize the customer as exempt in state B.
