Chapter 6 - Discounts and Overrides

In this chapter, we’ll explain how to use Overrides and Discounts in AvaTax.

  • An override is used when your transaction overrides normal behavior of the AvaTax engine. It can be used to change the tax amount or tax date for a transaction.
  • Discount is a reduction of the price on your item/service. There are several ways you can handle a discount with the AvaTax engine.

By the end of this chapter, you will be familiar with how to process both TaxAmount and TaxDate overrides as well as understand the various methods used to handle discounts.
