Sales Tax Overview

Sales tax functionality is available for any LO type. The sales tax functionality is set by the administrator in the following areas of the system:

  • Course Catalog - Online Course, Quick Course/Library, Test, Material
  • ILT Create Event - Event
  • Curricula Administration - Curriculum
  • Test Engine

Sales tax may be applied when a user checks out using the Credit Card payment method.

To utilize sales tax functionality in the system, you must own a CyberSource gateway ID and set up a tax nexus with CyberSource.

  • Sales tax functionality is unavailable if you are using a CSOD merchant account.
  • Sales tax functionality is not applicable if you are using CSOD PayGo content.
  • Organizations that have a CyberSource account or gateway are no longer charged processing fees to LOs, but delivery fees are still applicable.
