Discounts

Since the item level amount stored in our DB is the discounted amount, we are sending the discounted amount to Avalara while fulfilling the partially paid orders.( We are making two separate transactions in Avalara for partial payments). Is sending the discount amount mandatory? We are overriding the tax calculation using tax date override when the remaining amount is paid.

If you are passing the total amount as the discounted amount then sending a line level discount as well you will end up getting double the discount. For example if the item is $100 but you have it in your DB as $80 then create a transaction with the total line amount being $80 and adding a line level discount of $20 the tax calculation will be on $60.

Since we are sending the discounted amount as the total amount, discount amount sent to avalara will always be 0.Will this impact tax calculation in any way?
