If my Streamlined Sales Tax rates are incorrect, can they penalize me if I am audited?

Overview

I have some rates that are not correct, but they are in Streamlined Sales Tax (SST) states, and the data comes from them and can't be changed. Can they penalize me for incorrect rates?

Environment

Avalara Avatax

SST

Resolution

Even though the rate is incorrect, Avalara can't change the data and neither can the state, since it would be retroactive and history has to be maintained in SST data. The state will understand and expect this result and will not penalize you as a result of their error.
