How does SalesTaxII handle the New York Empire Zones?


I need to know how SalesTaxII handles New York Empire Zones




  • SalesTaxII will make the New York Empire Zone taxing decision if the Product Exemption file TAXID contains the proper entries and if the proper parameters are passed to the SalesTaxII calculation program.
  • A ‘CALLing’ program must pass ‘QEZE’ in the ‘Exempt Product Code’ parameter (Parameter PEXMP) when processing line items for a customer that qualifies for this exemption to SalesTaxII.
  • Customers can populate the SalesTaxII Product Exemption file with exemption codes for ‘Qualified Empire Zone Enterprise’ locations by selecting the Product Exemption Maintenance option from the SalesTaxII menu.
