To define a more complex Sales Tax, you might add:

• Group - to use grouped menus, such as by State

• Calc 1st - set a Tax Rate to apply first in a compound calculation

• Tax #2 - set a Tax Rate to use a second tax calculation for different items

• Limit - set a Tax Rate to apply up to the Limit specified

• Tax Tag - sets the Tax checkbox for Items with the Tag so only tagged Items are taxed

Please contact Support for help with settings. There are also options for Taxable Amounts to be used in Other Charges, to have Other Charges included in Taxable Amounts, and so on.

The pictured Sales Tax sets Items with the Tag, "Non-Food" to be taxed at 7.25% and other Items marked Taxable to be taxed at 2%.
