Why do states appear on the Liability Worksheet when we do not have nexus there and/or a filing calendar is not setup for the jurisdiction?


You see states on your liability worksheet, despite not having nexus there or filing in that state.


Avalara AvaTax


  • Each month, the liability worksheet displays sales for the monthly period organized by state/local jurisdictions independent of your nexus settings.
  • For those states where nexus is enabled and the jurisdiction is included on the filing calendar, the total sales including liabilities are displayed.
  • For states where nexus is not enabled, only the total gross sales in those locations are displayed.
  • AvaTax includes all states where transactions occur because some returns require reporting of gross company sales not just the gross sales for the jurisdiction.
