A tax override is where instead of AvaTax calculating the tax, you want to tell us the tax and have our system honor the amount. The use case is typically for tax amounts calculated by an external source, and then reported to Avalara to file.
Use the tax override option to prevent AvaTax from calculating sales tax on a transaction, preserving the sales tax amount already entered on the transaction.
- In NetSuite, open or create the transaction on which you want to stop AvaTax from calculating sales tax.
- On the Items tab, select Tax Override. When the transaction posts to AvaTax, sales tax isn't calculated and the Tax Override Reason listed on the transaction in AvaTax is "Tax has been provided by another service."
