 The caveat of this option is that the data source (the [[dynamiczip:​glossary:​rate_and_boundary_database|Rate & Boundary Database]] optional Plus4.txt file) does not identify the city when more than one choice exists for the ZIP Code. Most address validation software that is used to obtain the Zip+4 extension based on the street address returns the [[dynamiczip:​glossary:​usps_city_name|USPS Preferred City Name]]. As a result, if you enable the [[dynamiczip:​glossary:​Select Default]] option, DynamicZip will return the tax schedule for the USPS City and the ZIP+4 County. While this selection is for the correct state and county, it may be for an incorrect city. For optimum accuracy in tax schedule selection, we recommend that you do not enable the [[dynamiczip:​glossary:​Select Default]] option when using the [[dynamiczip:​features:​Zip4 Option|Zip+4 Option]] This way when a ZIP Code is selected that is used by more than one city, the user can be prompted to make the proper choice manually. The caveat of this option is that the data source (the [[dynamiczip:​glossary:​rate_and_boundary_database|Rate & Boundary Database]] optional Plus4.txt file) does not identify the city when more than one choice exists for the ZIP Code.

-Prior to [[dynamiczip:​install:​mods:​release:​build72:​build72|Build 72]] there was an additional caveat that was related to using [[dynamiczip:​glossary:​usps_city_name|USPS Preferred City Name]]. As of [[dynamiczip:​install:​mods:​release:​build72:​build72|Build 72]] this is a [[dynamiczip:​features:​Zip Addressing]] option that does not affect the [[dynamiczip:​features:​import:​rate_and_boundary_import|Rate & Boundary Import]] process. Prior to this build, this option did affect the [[dynamiczip:​features:​import:​rate_and_boundary_import|Rate & Boundary Import]] process in that it would replace the actual city with the USPS city for purposes of building and maintaining the tax schedule. This resulted in making the manual selection of the actual [[dynamiczip:​glossary:​Tax Location]] city impossible in cases where the actual city was not the USPS city. +Prior to [[dynamiczip:​install:​mods:​release:​build72:​build72|Build 72]] there was an additional caveat that was related to using [[dynamiczip:​glossary:​usps_city_name|USPS Preferred City Name]].
