You have reviewed your WA return and found that the deduction type "Advancements Reimbursements Returns & Allow" was used and you would like to know why.
- Avalara Returns
- AvaTax automatically calculates and adds this deduction due to a local jurisdiction having a negative sales amount.
- Both B&O and sales tax sections cannot report negative sales when filing the return on the WA website.
- The total amount of the deduction should be the sum of all negative local amounts.
- This amount is also added to the gross sales total to ensure that the tax amounts don't change and that a negative sales amount is not reported on the Business and Occupation (B&O) page.
