Tax Setting

Our Total Sales/Accommodation Tax is 12.275%.

It consist of:
State Tax 2.9%
County Tax 3.475%
City Tax 5.9%

It would be great if we could set a combined tax of 12.275%, and then see a report that would show each of these three taxes separately - to know how much tax we own to each agency.

Re: Tax Setting

The best way is to create one tax for each -- that way it will be broken out on reports etc.

Is there a problem with showing the individual taxes somewhere vs. the rollup?

Re: Tax Setting

Yes, but then it shows three taxes and it freaks people out. :) I know it's the same, I just think that it would "look" better. No big deal. Thanks!

Re: Tax Setting

I have 2 taxes - a 9.75% state and 3% county. I have one tax line item for total 12.75% and I break tax down into 2 parts and remit accordingly on my own. Showing potential guests multiple tax lines is not a good marketing idea imo.

Re: Tax Setting

If you use the "simplify charges" option on the booking widget, it'll collapse the taxes to one for display there, but it still shows individual taxes on the checkout and emails.

Perhaps we should add an account wide "collapse taxes" setting so it shows one tax line for all guest facing interactions.
