Explanation

Tax rules represent a change to the behavior of the AvaTax engine for specific products in specifc jurisdictions. If you have received a custom tax ruling from an auditor that changes the taxability of your goods or services, create a TaxRule to override how AvaTax will calculate tax for you.

Only Avalara Content Team members can create tax rules of this type. Please select a different tax type for your tax rule. The full list of tax types can be viewed in the Avalara Developer documentation.
