Creating Tax Rate Rules


To create a New Tax Rate Rule from the Tax Group page, click the Create Rule button under the Pending Tax Rate Rules header.  You can also create a Tax Rate Rule from the Tax Rate Rule section in OpSuite (found under Admin/Taxes).  This will open a pop-up window.  Below are the fields that can be entered on a New Tax Rate Rule.








Type Code - The unique code by which the Tax Rate Rule is identified and located within the system.  

Description - Detailed description of the Tax Group.
Maximum Taxable Amount - In the cases where the particular Tax Rate Rule will be in effect for a specific value range, this is the minimum (beginning) amount (where the tax rate will start to be applied).
Maximum Amount - In the cases where the particular Tax Rate Rule will be in effect for a specific value range, this is the maximum (ending) amount (where the tax rate will stop being applied).
Fixed Amount - The fixed tax amount, if there is one (this is not common).
Percentage - the Tax Rate for this rule is entered as a percentage (8% not .08)
Apply Over Minimum - Only apply tax to portion over minimum taxable amount. When checked, the system will only apply tax to the amounts above the minimum.
Include Previous Tax - This is a checkbox that the user can click or tap if they want to include the previously charged tax.
