    The Situs Rule and Transaction Type Code fields are defined by SureTax.  They are set to the default values on the service plan and can be changed as needed on the actual service. 

    The situs rule, transaction code and zip code are sent to SureTax before an invoice is generated. SureTax then returns the individual tax rates and amounts that need to be billed, which is then included in the invoice.

    These fields tell SureTax what service is actually being billed.  Ubersmith uses the recorded zip code to determine the location to tax for.  If there is no zip code set on the service, it looks to see if a device or location is set on the service, if no zip code is found after that, the client’s zip code specified in their primary contact details is used.

    1. In the Situs Rule (US/Canada) field, either select the appropriate rule from the list or click edit to manually enter a code.
    2. In the Situs Rule (Non US/Canada) field, either select the appropriate rule from the list or click edit to manually enter a code.
