Does selecting nexus in CertCapture cause tax calculation?


You see Nexus selection under Company Settings in Avalara CertCapture and want to know if that nexus affects your sales tax calculations.


Avalara CertCapture

Avalara AvaTax


  • Nexus in CertCapture indicates where you need to collect exemption certificates:
    • Most customers select only states where they currently collect tax, because they only need certificates in those states
    • To send a certificate request in a Mailing Campaign, the customer has to have a ShipTo state within Nexus
    • You can select nexus in CertCapture that is different than Avalara AvaTax and it will not cause tax calculation
      • Avalara AvaTax calculates tax only where nexus is selected in the Avalara AvaTax Admin Console
