How do I test the taxability of a code in a state?

Overview

You want to test the taxability of an Avalara tax code in a particular state.

Environment

Avalara AvaTax

Resolution

  • The basic tax calculator will be able to show the tax rate:
    • Go to Tools > Basic Tax Calculator
    • Use an address in the state > list the tax code in Tax Code > List an amount in Amount > click Calculate
      • For SST users: also list an ITEM code and an ITEM description

 

Note:

  • The Tools use the nexus settings in your account. If you have not enabled nexus in the state or local jurisdiction, the tax amount will always be $0 and show a 0.0% tax rate.
    • This also functions the same for Canadian Provinces
