  • Avalara Technical Support cannot say if freight is taxable in California or any state
    • If you have a tax code that you use, for example FR, you may send this code in a request a taxability matrix
    • The matrix will show the taxability by state for the code you specify, it will not say if your specific company is required to tax freight
  • If you would like to know if your company is required to tax freight, please reach out to the Department of Revenue
