Tax Exceptions

TAKU Retail's feature for creating tax rules allows you to accurately apply taxes to your sales. This guide will show you how to step up a tax rule to make tax exemptions and offer tax rebates.
In order to create tax exceptions, you must first create a new tax rule. Please follow the Creating Tax Rules guide to create a new tax rule.

Creating Tax Exemptions

To create a tax exemption, enter the rule name for your tax in the Rule Name field and select the sales tax you would like to apply the tax exemption to from the drop down menu in the Tax Name field. You will only be able to select active sales taxes while the rest will be locked.
Enter the tax rate in a percentage that you wish to exempt in the Tax Rate field.
You must enter the country, postal/ZIP code, region, and/or cities that this tax exemption is applicable in.
Under the Others section, select Exempt from the drop down menu in the Tax Calculation Type field. It is optional to set a rule priority if there are multiple tax rules applied to the same sales tax. 0 is the highest priority meaning it is applied first and 1 is applied after and so forth.
