Tax codes are used to record taxes on transactions for tax filing and/or integration purposes.  

For the most part you will define the tax code of your physical store location and reference the code (along with the tax %) on the Settings record.

Taxes are primarily used for charging tax at the POS.  If a Customer is taxable and a Product is taxable then tax is levied on the transaction.

There are two special tax codes which must NEVER be deleted:

  • Non Taxable - use to write non-taxable transactions.

Note: Avatax is used for complex tax calculations.  SuitePOS Avatax Integration is used to derive taxes based on tax codes set up at the Product level via Avalara's Avatax service.
