Remove taxes on modifiers

Hello!

 

Is there a way to remove taxes on modifiers?

 

I understand that taxes are applied on each line item. But this is not very accurate for all businesses, we should be able to exempt taxes for specific modifiers.

 

For instance, I use modifiers for returnable-containers in my business. You pay 1$ or 2$ (depending of what you choose) your container but we refund you 1$ or 2$ if you bring back your container. But with Square it adds the taxes on modifiers as well which is problematic in this case because returnable containers are not taxable.

 

Is there a workaround for that? Or maybe this can be a feature request?

 

Thanks

Hello @kbarralon,

Thank you for posting in the Seller Community.

 

At the moment we do not have the ability to disable taxes at a modifier level. We definitely see how it could benefit your business model. Our teams are constantly looking through our seller's feedback to make necessary improvements, and we will be sure to let you know if anything ever changes or if new updates are released.

+1 here, we need that option.

 

We always charge the bottle fee (no taxes on this fee) on every cider bottle sold. I would need to have a 1,50$ added with every bottle purchases with no taxes.

 

I don‘t see how to do that at the moment.

 

The modifier with no taxes would allow us to do that... although if it is directly added in the purchase basket (with no taxes) that would work for us as well.

This reply was created from merging an existing thread: Removing tax on Modifiers

 

I've recently started setting up a Square website and terminal for our brewery retail, and all our beer sales need a 0.10c deposit with them. I've set up the beer items to have tax on them, however when I set up a modifier for can deposits, the modifier also has tax on it which is not what I want.

 

I've tried having the deposit as it's own item which works for our in-store sales, however when we get online orders many people aren't selecting the can deposit as well.

 

If there is a way to have tax options on modifiers this would be the perfect solution, but as far as I can see, no such option exists.

Hey @Steve-o_C

 

 

Thank you for reaching out!

 

Just to make sure I am understanding correctly - you want to add a tax to the modifier on your beer items? 

 

Taxes are applied to the entire item.

It would be awesome to remove the taxes on the modifier.   So the Main Item is taxable, but the Modifier is Not taxable.

 

That's what we need.

I too Have this issue and have requested an enhancement.   I have an item that has tax that is often purchased with a non taxable item, without the non taxable item being a modifier-it is often a missed item because it needs to be purchased separately.  

 

This is a huge customer issue.

 

I Agree, it would be awesome to have this !

I would also like to be able to charge a deposit on every can we sell. We need a way to charge the taxes on the beer and the 20c deposit as an extra. Has anyone figured this out without making the customer add the deposit to the online cart?

Echoing what everyone else in this thread is saying.

 

We are another company that needs to add a non-taxable bottle deposit to each bottle of cider we sell. Leaving this up to the customer to add in the online store is not a workable solution.


The ability to automatically add a non-taxable modifier (in this case a bottle deposit) to an otherwise taxable item, is a key missing feature for anyone in our situation (selling products in a returnable package like a can or bottle online). Please prioritize this as a feature to update!

 

Thanks,

If the modifier cannot be setup to be non-taxable, then there needs to be a way to automatically add a separate item (that is not taxed) to the on-line order when another item is added and prevent the user from removing from their order.

 

Otherwise, Square does not work well for anyone selling taxable products on-line that must collect a non-taxable bottle refund.

Agreed, this is pivotal for a liquor store.
Each item will require a deposit (cans and bottles).

Each item might be a single can, 4 cans, 6, 8, 12, 15, 24

Bottles might be 1, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24

As well we have an enviro fee applied to certain items.

 

None of these are taxable items!
