What Tax Area Is Used on My Projects?

Since most states and jurisdictions go based off of where goods are exchanged, our program defaults to that. If you prefer your HQ, please let us know!. You can learn more here.

How is Tax Calculated on My Items?

Goodshuffle Pro calculates tax per line item. If you have a tax rate set on an inventory item, we’ll use that. If you add a custom item or an item whose tax rate wasn’t predetermined, you must add the tax.

Note: If you didn't add assign a tax to will calculate 0% tax.

You learn more about seeing what tax is applying to your items below.

Goodshuffle Pro calculates tax per line item, not at a subtotal level, as most of our users need to charge multiple taxes per item. For example, a drink machine may need to have sales tax, entertainment tax, and food and beverage tax calculating on a project.

The system automatically adds all the line items various tax types and you can see the totals for all taxes in the Totals section in the bottom right hand corner of your project.

For example, let’s say you had the following items and tax rates on Project "Test Tax":

Bounce House $1000 (5% rental tax)

Balloons $100 (6% sales tax)

Cotton Candy $100 (10% food & beverage Tax)

The total tax would be:

Bounce House $1000 (5% rental tax)= $50

Balloons $100 (6% sales tax)= $6

Cotton Candy $100 (10% food & beverage Tax)= $10

Total tax= $66

That’s the way Goodshuffle Pro calculates that total.

For another example, let’s say you accidentally left tax off an inventory item in Project "No Tax":

Bounce House $1000 (5% rental tax)

Balloons $100 (6% sales tax)

Cotton Candy $100 (whoops! Forgot tax!)

The total tax would be:

Bounce House $1000 (5% rental tax)= $50

Balloons $100 (6% sales tax)= $6

Cotton Candy $100 (No Tax)= $0

Total tax= $56

Don't worry! You can easily add/change the tax of an item on a project.

If this item does need taxes on your future projects, we strongly suggest you add any needed tax to the item itself from your inventory (or click the item's name on a project to edit it) to ensure it'll apply on your future projects.

Now you've got tax added to your items, you can learn how to generate a tax report below.
