Setting Taxes Per Product or Department

If you have certain items in your store that require different taxation, you can set up their tax rates per product or department.

Setting Taxes per Department

Within the Details tab, you will see two fields for Taxable 1 and Taxable 2. You will see that these fields are filled with either a T (meaning taxed) or an N (meaning not taxed). The taxes applied here are set in accordance with your default tax profile, which is set within the Tax Info tab of your Company Setup screen, accessed via your Admin Central. However, if you have a department that is taxed differently at different locations, you can click the Tax tab on your Department Setup screen. This will open the Tax Settings by Location screen.

On the Tax Settings by Location screen, you will see drop-down fields in the Store Name column, where you can select the store you’re setting the tax profile for. On that store’s line, you can set your Taxable1 and Taxable2 invoice application with a T (taxed) or an N (not taxed). 

When you are finished setting taxes per location within the department, click the Save & Close button at the top of the screen. Your changes will be saved automatically.

Setting Taxes per Product

Occasionally, you may only have a few items in your store that need to be taxed. If so, you can set taxable rates for your inventory items through the item’s Product screen. To access the Product Screen, open your central Products screen and either search for the item via the Search By area on the upper left side of the screen, by clicking the New Product button and creating a new inventory item, or by clicking the List Products screen and selecting the item from the list.

On your item’s Product Screen, click on the Pricing tab. This will open the item’s Location Cost and Pricing. Within this tab, you will see two fields each for Taxable 1 and Taxable 2. You will see that these fields are filled with either a T (meaning taxed) or an N (meaning not taxed). The taxes applied here are set in accordance with your default tax profile, set in your Company Setup screen. You can apply or remove the taxes for this item by changing the fields for each taxable charge to either a T or N. When you’re finished, click the Back button. This will close the item’s Product Screen and save all of your changes.

You can also change tax profiles for your consignment items. To do so, locate the consignment item by searching in the Search By fields on both the main Products and Consignment screens, clicking the List Consignment button on either of your Products or Consignment screens, or you can create a new consignment item by clicking the New Consignment Item button on either of your Products or Consignment screens.

On your item’s Consignment Inventory screen, you will see fields for Taxable 1 and Taxable 2 towards the bottom of the screen, in the Item Cost and Pricing area. You can change those tax rates to either a T (meaning taxed) or an N (meaning not taxed). When you have made your changes, click the Save & Close button. This will save your changes and close the item’s screen.
