Businesses and organizations can obtain tax exemption status for favorable tax rates in accordance with their local or national laws. Common tax exempt entities include governments, nonprofits, religious organizations, educational organizations, etc.
To support Commerce's use cases for recognizing tax exemption status using third-party tax compliance software like Avalara, portal accounts can provide a free-form text field intended to store the tax exemption status.
- AccountEntity provides a text field named "taxExemptionCode"
- AccountEntity provides a service method to update the taxExemptionCode.
- Note: validation and a UI to update the values are NOT required for this story. These will be provided via the Avalara connector (COMMERCE-4274)
