How do I make an item tax at 10% more of the base amount?


I need a specific item to be taxable by 110%

This will need to be a specific kind of custom rule:
  • Click the Organization tab>Tax Rules
  • Click New
  • Choose the applicable state and click Next
  • Name your rule
  • Select Rule Type: Base Override
  • Choose tax type (reflective of your nexus settings in that state)
  • Choose entity use code if applicable
  • In base override amount choose the percentage you'd like to calculate for (110%)
  • Pick the Tax code you would like this to apply to in Tax Code selection
  • Choose your effective date range (start and end dates)
Click Finish

Your rule will not apply to this tax code going forward
