What are the differences between tax jurisdictions of the same percentage?
Sales tax law is extremely complicated.
Xactware has conducted extensive sales tax research in each price list area and jurisdiction and has tried to make sales tax as easy to apply as possible. A tax jurisdiction, as determined by the zip code, may have multiple tax rates or multiple options of the same rate.
You can choose from the options to apply a specific sales tax rate to a claim. The different options allow you to decide which items the sales tax will be applied to. XactContents users probably want to use the “Contents Only” option.
