Fields



DetailVersion ( string ) [0..1]
Returns the latest version number for this feature. Use the version to determine if and when to refresh your cached client data.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use DetailVersion.

JurisdictionID ( string ) [0..1]
This is the unique, two-digit identifier of the tax jurisdiction (such as 'CA' for California). To retrieve all JurisdictionID values for a site, a seller can either use a GetTaxTable call with DetailLevel set to ReturnAll, or they can use the GeteBayDetails call with DetailLevel name set to TaxJurisdiction.

The JurisdictionID field is always required in a SetTaxTable call, and always returned with each TaxJurisdiction container to identify the tax jurisdiction.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use JurisdictionID.

JurisdictionName ( string ) [0..1]
Full name for the jurisdiction or region for display purposes.
See the Field Index to learn which calls use JurisdictionName.

SalesTaxPercent ( float ) [0..1]
This float value is the sales tax percentage rate applicable to the corresponding tax jurisdiction. Sellers are responsible for providing accurate sales tax rates for each jurisdiction. This sales tax rate comes into play when a buyer from that tax jurisdiction makes a purchase from the seller. The value passed in is stored with a precision of 3 digits after the decimal point (##.###).

This field is only returned in GetTaxTable (and other 'Get' calls) if a sales tax percentage rate has been set.

Note: Buyers in all 50 US states and DC are automatically charged sales tax for eBay purchases, and eBay collects and remits this sales tax to the proper taxing authority on the buyer's behalf. Because of this, if a sales tax percentage rate is applied to a listing by a seller in one of these states, this field will be ignored during the checkout process.

Currently, sales tax percentage rates can only be specified by sellers in Canada and 5 US territories, including American Samoa (AS), Guam (GU), Northern Mariana Islands (MP), Palau (PW), and Virgin Islands (VI).
See the Field Index to learn which calls use SalesTaxPercent.

ShippingIncludedInTax ( boolean ) [0..1]
This field is included in a SetTaxTable call and set to true if the seller wants sales tax for the jurisdiction to apply to the cumulative amount of item cost and shipping charges. This value defaults to false if not specified.

This field is always returned with each TaxJurisdiction container (whether true or false).
