  • In NetSuite, under Avalara > Setup > Configure Avalara > Tax Calculation tab we have option to show Tax Rate as 'Base Rate' or 'Net Rate'.
    • To resolve, ensure Tax Rate is set to 'Show Net Rate'.
      • Select Show Base Rate to show a tax rate that includes all the jurisdictions for the transaction, whether or not that tax was applied to the transaction.
      • Select Show Net Rate to show the tax rate applied to the transaction.
  • Re-save the transaction in NetSuite to update the tax rate displayed on the 'Items' tab of the invoice.
