The jurisdiction type value is an enumerated value that can only be one of the following values:

  • Country (sometimes abbreviated CNT) - This represents a country that is recognized by ISO 3166 as having its own country code.
  • State (also known as Region, Province, or sometimes abbreviated STA) - This represents an administrative jurisdiction within the country.
  • County (sometimes abbreviated CTY) - A smaller administrative jurisdiction than a state/region/province, but typically larger than a city. Not all countries have county jurisdictions.
  • City (sometimes abbreviated CIT) - An administrative jurisdiction representing a single city.
  • Special (sometimes abbreviated STJ for Special Tax Jurisdiction) - An administrative jurisdiction created for the purpose of taxing transactions within a boundary.
