On the last day of each month, the Binswanger Vertex tax tables must be updated. Binwanger will provide the update file, but the process to update the SQL data must be performed by a Systems team member. If you have not received notice that the data file is ready within 5 days of the end of the month, contact Keith Chatman firstname.lastname@example.org.
After 7:00pm Pacific time, log on to the DC1TSV00 (10.168.4.248) server.
The update files will be stored in the following location:
The folders for the files are listed by Month and Year (e.g. January 2015). Copy the entire folder to the C: drive of the DC1TSV00 server. Delete any previous update folders to reclaim drive space.
Click on START > All Programs > Vertex Sales Tax, and launch Sales Tax Utilities.
