How do I make an item taxed at a different rate?


You want to make an item tax at a different rate other than the standard rate which would typically apply to sales in a state.

  • Map the item to a tax code which only applies to that item (if the item is your only item using the tax code, skip this step)
  • Create a tax rule (Organization > Tax Rules > New) for the state, using a Rate Override rule:
    • Choose the state
    • Choose Rate Override as the rule type
    • Enter the rate (1 = 1%)
    • Enter the tax code
    • Set date range
    • Click Save
