Why are locals not calculating even though we have the county rate turned on in Nexus?


Local jurisdictions are not calculating, even though we have the county turned on in Nexus.

  • When you set the nexus for a Homerule state, such as Alabama, and select the option of 'Selective', you will need to manually select each local jurisdiction you would like to calculate tax in.
    • If you only select the county jurisdiction, the associated city and STJ jurisdictions will not automatically be added.
      • Tax will not calculate for the other local jurisdictions, until you activate their nexus as well.
  • Please be sure that if you are expecting special jurisdictions to show on your calculations, and that they are selected for that state.
  • Not all addresses will reflect the rate you are expecting by only having the county selected for nexus.
