ALERT: Action may be required if you maintain custom taxability rules

Avalara has conducted a review of jurisdictions within the AvaTax jurisdiction database, and we have identified a number of duplicate jurisdiction records for non-compulsory local jurisdictions in these states: AL, AZ, CO, TX. Avalara will expire these duplicate jurisdictions with the October 1, 2020 tax content update.

If you have local nexus enabled in one of the duplicate jurisdictions that is being expired, Avalara will automatically update your settings to use the corresponding version of the jurisdiction that is not being expired. 

Please review this Help Center guide for additional information, including a list of these duplicate jurisdictions that are being expired, the corresponding versions of the jurisdictions that are not being expired, and additional resolution steps.

The following jurisdictions are new local jurisdictions. An update to the jurisdiction selection of your company may be required. Learn how to tell us where you collect and pay tax. If these are mandatory jurisdictions, we automatically select them if you collect and pay tax in the corresponding state. You don't need to add them.
