Why is Florida rounding strangely?

Overview

Florida calculations with AvaTax are off by a penny or so. It appears to be due to rounding errors.

Environment

Avalara AvaTax

Resolution

Sales tax rates in Florida and Maryland are based on a bracket tax system for certain goods and services. The amount of a taxable sale is cross-referenced with the associated sales tax due for that bracket. 

AvaTax automatically applies the appropriate rounding logic for these states. As a result, it is expected that you may not see different results with Document or Line Level Rounding set in your company settings for transactions within the state of Florida. Learn more about these bracket systems over at the Avalara blog.
