Specify Second Level Tax on specific products (PST is not charged on every product in BC)

Nicholas Dew shared this idea 4 years ago
Under Consideration

In BC another provinces in Canada, as well as some states in the US there is a second tax that only applies to certain services and products. The way WHMCS is setup right now if you add a second level tax it applies to everything invoiced in that Province/State. This is a big problem as we would be charging extra tax and people would not use our services. If we don't add it though than we can get investigated by the Government and fined for not collecting tax that is required by law. We really need to feature added so we can specify which products should include second level taxes, it should not be to hard there is already a check box for taxes just split out in to two boxes one to apply first level tax and one to apply second level tax.

But Jamie, it's only the 4th highest voted "Under Consideration" and the only one of them that deals with actual legal requirements to use the software properly in some jurisdictions. And it has only been requested since two years.

Let's wait with this some more and work a bit more on ...let's say... themes. That's more fun, easier and faster to see results.

Yup. In my 24 years of being in this business, I've been through the sales tax audits and I have had my hand slapped for not doing the taxes properly.

I quite simply can't use it until it does things correctly.

Priorities I guess...

Uh.. this is a deal breaker.

I'm in BC too, and I have the same PST problem too.

We have to charge taxes based on State and City and in some cases County. We need more levels!
