Which Jurisdiction should I choose to collect tax?

Overview

You want to know more about the selecting the jurisdiction to collect sales tax.

Environment

QuickBooks Desktop

Resolution

Your business activities determine your jurisdictions. Each state defines the rules for when a business is required to collect and remit sales and use tax. If sales occur in jurisdictions you have not selected in AvaTax, the resulting tax calculation returns a value of zero tax. In this step, you'll tell AvaTax where your company is registered to collect and remit sales tax.
