How do I not calculate city tax?


You are calculating tax at the city and county level and need to disable it.

  • Select local jurisdictions where applicable (Organization > Nexus > Select Local Jurisdictions)
  • Select the nexus tax type setting Sales or Sellers Use (Organization > Nexus > Select Local Jurisdictions US > Tax Type)



Note: Most local jurisdictions (city, special, etc.) have a sales tax rate, but may not have a use tax rate. When you calculate interstate tax (origin in a different state than destination) with the tax type setting Sales or Sellers Use this results in Use Tax rates being applied, so you are likely to see no local tax applied. We recommend basing your nexus selection on your obligation to collect tax in the state.
