Why is Utah sourcing tax at the origin?


You see that some of your sales have sales tax sourced based at the origin in Utah.

  • For any sale where the origin and destination address are in Utah (an intrastate sale - occurs completely within one state) tax on most items will be based on the origin address rather than the destination
    • Sales which originate outside of Utah (Interstate sales - occurs between two states) will tax based on destination
    • Sales taxed with certain special tax types, such as a service tax type, will be taxed based on destination
