CRV is used for bottles and packages for certain products. It stands for California Refund Value. It is mostly used in California and imposed by the California state law. The main function is to promote the recycling of packages and bottles. California CRV is taxed.

Please Note: By design, CRV is supported in the USA, Poland and Lithuanian fiscal printers. The tax must be set to one of those countries in order for CRV to be enabled per product. Is it not supported in Canada.
