MULTIPLE TAXES:

Many locations must charge multiple taxes to their entire Menu or specific Menu Items (i.e. alcohol). The Tax Profile makes applying multiple taxes very simple.

For locations that require more than one tax to be charged on specific items, two Tax Profiles will be required. The first Tax Profile will contain the primary tax that applies to a majority of the Menu. A second Tax Profile, containing multiple taxes, will be necessary for those special Menu Items.

For locations that require multiple taxes to be charged on the entire Menu, one Tax Profile will be required.

After creating the first tax within a Tax Profile (see above), create the second tax.

1. Repeat Steps 6 - 17 from above.
