🚧

Tax Parameter Type Limitation

Currently, definitions are only supported for tax parameters of type "percent". All other tax parameter types will have the "definitions" field set as null.

See all available tax parameter types here.

The following list of effectively dated definitions is used to provide validation or guidance for the tax parameter setting values. For tax parameters with multiple definitions effective at different dates, the definitions will be sorted in a descending order where the definition with the most recent effective date will appear first.
