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

It looks to me, from your post, that you set your tax exemption to be a fixed amount (\$7.75) instead of a percentage. I didn't think that was possible, but the numbers above suggest that is what's happening.

The module works, I use it in my online store, it's not as beautiful as it might be, but it is more flexible than simply canceling tax calculation for exempt customers.

doh! silly comment from me, 7.75&#37; of \$100 is, of course, \$7.75.

The suggestion that you review your order total sequence still stands, though.

I tried changing the sequence and the calculation came out to be the same. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. This mod is not that important to me so I installed the other mod that just removes tax all together. Thank you for your input Diana.

Thank you.

I've completed the Tax Exempt module which allows users to disable individual taxes on a per customer basis. It'll be available for download this evening from the Numinix Technology website.

I'll post again when it's ready.
