Thread: Item Taxes on Shipping

  1. #1
    I have a client who will potentially buy this product as an Add-in for Microsoft RMS under one condition. It needs to be able to distinguish between items shipped to a "taxable" state and a "non-taxable" state. For example, any items shipped to New Jersey, Connecticut and Florida MUST be taxed, but not to any other state. This has to be done "on the fly;" it cannot be pre-defined IN the item, since that is dependent upon WHERE the item is being shipped to.

    Does this program do this?

    I don't follow the question.

    How does "taxability" impact how the item is shipped? ShipRush has no way to read if a sale is taxable or not.

    Yes it does. Depending upon the STATE the item is shipped to it may or may not be taxable. Example: I sell 2 sleeves of golf balls to a customer in Maine. They are NOT taxable because they are going to Maine. I sell 2 sleeves to a customer in Connecticut. They ARE taxable because they are going to Connecticut. Can the state laws be incorporated into the program; i.e., it reads the destination state and determines if the item is taxable or not? Otherwise, we have to create TWO of EVERY item? One "taxable" and one "non-taxable"?

    Sorry, but ShipRush has no brains of this kind.

    RMS (I think) has its own tax tables, and has a general idea (I think) about when to charge tax based on the state being sold to.

    Potentially, RMS could make this decision.

    ShipRush just gives a number to RMS (the shipping cost, [and, if configured, a markup]). ShipRush has zero brains related to sales tax, so is not able to participate in such a decision.

    Sorry we do not have a 'pat' answer for this. Let us know how we can help!

    StreamV from Cove Systems (www.covesys.com) will do this in the application and pass the right data to ShipRush. This is an applicaiton issue not a shipping issue. The shipping issue is weither to know if tax should be charged on shipping (STV will also do this).
