I currently have a client in the alcoholic beverage wholesale industry that is implementing Dynamics 365 Business Central, and they need federal excise tax to be a flat charge; not a percentage rate. They incur the tax in one of two scenarios:
At the time of sale (shipping to customer directly from in-bond warehouse)
When moving goods from an in-bond to a tax-paid warehouse
In a third scenario, the client does not incur, nor do they need to track FET:
3. Drop-ship to customer directly from overseas, client does not handle tax, does not need to track. Customer pays FET.
They do not pay FET more than once. Has anyone encountered this before, or know of any solutions, or had to deal with that scenario before? Avalara said they don’t deal with excise tax at the federal level.
