Why can I not create a rule for a country selected in Nexus?


You are trying to create a tax rule for a country that you just added to nexus, but it is not in the dropdown on Step 1 of rule creation.

  • You can create a rule only while nexus is active, if you post dated nexus to start later than today, you cannot yet create a rule
  • Change the start date to today or earlier so nexus is active, or write the rule once nexus is active.
