    Default Re: Making a customer tax exempt

    You can't just make them tax exempt overall?

    Just a simple taxable / exempt kind of thing?

    Not complaining, mind you, just curious.

    I've got people looking for exempt in all states kind of thing.

    No, there is not a tax exempt feature at this time.
    Please do not PM for support issues: a private solution doesn't benefit the community.

    Be careful with unsolicited advice via email or PM - Make sure the person you are talking to is a reliable source.

    The Tax Exempt Mod doesn't seem to calculate the tax charged for shipping.

    Sub-Total:$5.00
    Flat Rate (Best Way):$5.00
    WA TAX 8.9%:$0.88
    Tax Exempt:-$0.45
    Total:$10.43

    It seems that the Include Shipping, Include Tax and Re-calculate Tax options of this mod are not currently functioning. I have tried this with a few installations, all with the same result. Would someone be willing to test and see if they have the same experience. I have version 2.1 of Tax Exempt Status and Zen Cart 1.3.7 and I do have my shipping set as Taxable Goods.


    Thanks to anyone willing to look into this the Zen Cart Community rocks!

    Sorry about the double post...
    Looks like I'm not alone

    This post also seems to be related to the Tax Exempt mod not calculating the tax charged to shipping.

    I installed the Tax Exempt 2.1 MOD and it works other than it only discounts the tax from the sub total and doesn't include the shipping tax. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I've taken a look at this module and I think the original author wasted a lot of time writing this. They should have simply switched on/off tax calculation whether or not the customer is in a tax exempt group by adding a conditional statement to the tax calculation module.

    Does that mean that you will be writing such a module? I certainly hope you do! That sounds almost too simple. Unfortunately don't know how to do it but I know what you are talking about.

    I downloaded the Tax Exempt Module 2.1 and the install document talks about a DATABASE CHANGE. That is scary stuff. Does it happen automatically or is that something I have to do manually? Can it be reversed if the module does not work for me? I am a CHICKEN !

    I don't have the time. I couldn't tell you if it is simple or not since I haven't taken a look. However, charging tax and then simply subtracting after as a discount is an amateur method and doesn't look very professional on the part of the store. You'd be better off placing the orders manually for the tax exempt customers. In Canada these would be businesses with PST numbers, or Native Status Canadians. Other exemptions can be covered by zones and do not require an additional module.

    help question Re: Making a customer tax exempt

    Having a problem with the tax exempt module.
    I have a group discount of 35% and the tax that is being discounted is from the sub-total and not after the group discount. Is there a way to fix this?

    Here is a sample:

    Sub-Total: $100.00

    Table Rate (Best Way): $13.00

    Group Discount: -$35.00

    CA TAX 7.75%: $5.04

    Tax Exempt: -$7.75

    Total: $75.29


    Please help
