Thanks for bringing this up, @julietpae. Square Appointments does not support taxable Services at this time, but you can create items within the Appointments app that can have taxes applied.

 

In addition, if you're set up with pre-payments on your Online Booking site, you could include the sales tax within the Service price.

 

For in-app sales, you'll have to apply the tax manually for the appropriate service at checkout. Our Appointments Team is tracking this request, and we'll be sure to announce any updates. Appreciate your patience on this and please keep in touch!

They definitely need to add the ability to assign sales tax to "services" just like "items." For those who run salons, services are taxed and so are items (products). It doesn't make sense that there's no way to apply sales tax to services automatically. Huge design oversight.

I agree, having to add sales tax manually to services is a problem. I see the original question was from a few months ago - are there any updates on this enhancement?

No updates on this at this time unfortunately @asthefurflie 

 

We'll continue to bring this to our Appointments teams attention and hopefully we can implement something to help with this. 

 

In the meantime, check out a few workarounds that are suggested in this thread.

How do I have tax automatically added to services rather than having to take the extra step?

Whenever I go to check out a client with appointments, it makes me add the sales tax on. Super annoying and often missed step. There has to be a way for it to be automatically added? It would be better to turn turn it off rather than turn it on.

it depends on how you have it set up.  you can make it automatically on based on how you have your items set up.  you can turn on the tax for some or all of your items here.  https://squareup.com/dashboard/items/taxes

In appointments how can I add sales tax to a prepaid appointment?

I am using a prepaid appointment for a special promotion.  If the appt fee is $200 how do i enable adding sales tax to the prepayment when the customer books?  I don't think it will look right to have it show as $212, which would be the total after tax.  But if I don't add it then I am going to have to eat and pay the tax.  Thanks
