Why is the tax code taxing at destination?


On my invoice the transactions are taxing at both origin and destination and on the lines for Services it is on destination but you expect that everything should be taxed based on origin address.

  • Most service type tax codes charge at the destination address versus the origin address, such as Missouri or Pennsylvania.
  • To have tax calculate at the origin address, you will need to use a non-service tax code.
  • If you have a custom tax code mapped as a service in Avatax, you can change the tax type of the tax code to something other than service.
  • When you recalculate, you should see it is now taxing at the origin address.
