Update the local tax repository and rates 

This section only applies if local tax codes are used.

1.  After the tax update has been installed and activated click the Install Repository button in the Local and Other Custom Taxes Function to update all the local rates in the system.

2.  After the repository update finishes, click the Finder button, and select each of your local tax codes individually. For each local tax code, click the Update button to update the company level tax rates with the information from the repository.

3.  Click Save.

Note: If any of your local tax codes uses the calculation method Percentage of Base, you must update each employee assigned that tax code to ensure that the rate at the employee level is correct.
