What is a tax code and why do I need it?


You are trying to setup the tax code and item section but need more information on what the purpose of a tax code is.

  • A tax code is a code you add to an item to tell the Avalara Service to tax in a special way
  • Use a tax code when you want something to be taxed as something other than Tangible Personal Property, which is 100% taxable in all areas where sales tax is calculated
