Post-Tax vx. Pre-Tax
These settings are effective January 1, 2023
There are two ways your specified tax rates can be calculated within your transactions.
- NOTE: For states outside of California, excise taxes will be set within the Tax Options as a normal line item tax where they can then be set to either pre-tax or post-tax.
Your tax option will default as a "post-tax" calculation, meaning the rates will be added to the final subtotal. After taxes are calculated, there will be a new final total.
The pre-tax option will still calculate a value based on the specific rates, but NOT affect the final subtotal. With this option enabled, BLAZE will reverse engineer the applicable tax rates starting from the final total.
It is important to remember that the order/sequence the rates are calculated will start at the top and finish at the bottom.
- EX: City > County > State > Federal
- NOTE: This is if the "tax option" is set to "complex"
- EX: City > State > Federal
- NOTE: This is if the "tax option" is set to "regular"
Always run a test transaction to test your tax rates, to ensure you get the calculations you want.
