Zuora supports the configuration of tax dates for each country or region. By default, the tax date for a country or region is set to Document Date.
- If you do not have the Invoice Settlement feature enabled, Document Date defaults the invoice date.
- If you have the Invoice Settlement feature enabled, Document Date defaults the memo date.
If you use the tax code of Zuora Tax for tax automation and set the "When service period of an invoice item crosses multiple tax rate period, it will generate:" billing rule to Multiple Tax Items, the tax date configuration does not affect the generation of multiple taxation items.

- Click your username at the top right and navigate to Billing > Billing Settings.
- Click Setup Tax Engine and Tax Date.
