Note: If the corresponding taxType is
VAT, and the lineItems.taxes container also appears for this line item with the same tax amount, the order is subject to 'eBay Collect and Remit' tax. For orders that are subject to 'eBay Collect and Remit' tax, the tax amount in this field will be included in the lineItems.total, paymentSummary.payments.amount, paymentSummary.totalDueSeller, and pricingSummary.total fields.
Note: On January 31, 2022, the orders.fulfillmentStartInstructions.shippingStep.shipTo.contactAddress.addressLine2 will stop being used to return VAT information, so developers should make sure they integrate with the new fields before that time.
Note: Although the collectionMethod field is returned for all orders subject to 'Collect and Remit' tax, the collectionMethod field and the CollectionMethodEnum type are not currently of any practical use, although this field may have use in the future. If and when the logic of this field is changed, this note will be updated and a note will also be added to the Release Notes.
