Tax Authority

The Authority refers to the statute or government branch that levies the tax. Education, Special Purpose, Local Option, and Transportation are some examples of authorities. The Authority is stored in the DZ Tax Detail Supplement table.

The Authority field should always have a value. If the rate and boundary database lists an Authority, that will be the value. Otherwise, the value will be State for state taxes, County for county taxes or City for city taxes.

  • For state tax details, the Tax Authority is State.
  • For county tax details, the Tax Authority is County.
  • For city tax details, the Tax Authority is City.
  • For county and city local taxes, the Tax Authority is the description of the tax such as “Regional Transportation District”.
