What is the difference between 'TotalTax' and 'TotalTaxCalculated' on the report?


I am seeing a difference on the TotalTax and the TotalTaxCalculated on a report. 


Avalara Reports


  • TotalTax is the tax calculated for the transaction.
  • TotalTaxCalculated is what the amount would have been if there were not rules governing the tax calculated. 
  • There are also jurisdictional rules which alter the tax amount, such as tax maximums.
