Non-Taxable Products (Labor Operations)


Recommended Posts

We sell products and services. In Colorado, labor is non-taxable. I have had no problem setting up the taxes for Colorado, but I need specific products (labor operations) to be non-taxable. I tried setting up the Zero Rate  Tax Class to be 0.00%, but the products I select this rate with still show the Standard Rates. I am assuming that cc doesn't like the 0%. Anyone have suggestions on how to make this work? I have also tried checking the Tax Included box, but that didn't seem to make any changes. Screenshots included. Thanks!

To start / test, I have only been manipulating one product until I can get it to work properly. As to the customer groups, the only group that I have created are for employees where I have a category to access benefits information. Not using that for real products / customers, though.

check if your test customer is a member of any groups, if so you probably need to assign the right tax class to that customer group at the product level. Each customer group has it's own pricing/tax class definition at the product level. it's usually the issue. :)

if your tech savvy you may want to think about a module or code snippit to sync the tax rules between groups, unless the intention is different tax per group.  It's something I setup for most customers of the EU VAT module because everybody always remembers to change the retail price/tax, but never the other groups.

When my site grows up a bit more I might do that to open it up a bit more for my dealers, but for now, I only use the groups for the employees. Thanks again!

However, I must be having a "moment" because I can't find where the group is affected by the tax rules. All I am seeing under Taxes is naming the tax type, applying it to subtotal/shipping/or both, and the rate. I don't see a way to modify the current Group, and if I add another, it only gives me a box to name it and give it a description.

Nevermind! I found it... A total blonde moment. <sigh>.... Have a great day!
