Square Register App Tax Rates
Mon, 05/13/13 2:10 PM
Hi, where I'm located there is a federal tax of 5% applied to all items, but the state tax is 8% applied to food items over 4$, Making it 13% total tax on items over $4. items under $4 are taxed at 5% federal tax only. BUT if items under 4$ are combined in the same sale, the items are now taxes at 13%.
Example: a small fry is 3.10 plus tax. This item is taxed at 5% federal tax. BUT if someone buys two small fries, they're now taxed at 13%. How do I get square register set up to accommodate this tax issue? The only solution I've seen so far is to have seperate buttons for each item. As in...have one button for a single fry only. And another button for a fry in conjunction with other items. This seems practical in theory, but in a busy food truck, I can't see the employees remembering to hit the appropriate button each time. Any other solutions? We are located in Ontario, canada.
