Agree- this is definity something that needs attention. I sell product (taxable in my state) as well as a non taxable service (such as a workshop) that does not get taxed.  My only option is to refund

I've asked SquareSpace for the same thing. They should give users the options to override tax.

Just spoke with someone on chat (very good experience, by the way) and this is still not possible. The whole point of providing the ability to capture taxes separately is to make my job easier when filing with my state's taxation department. If I have to figure out which items were incorrectly priced due to non-taxability, I've lost that convenience and I might as well *not* separate taxes from my product prices.

Please, developers, add this feature. Wix + Weebly handles this properly! A simple checkbox on each product would suffice.

I have to admit that I'm amazed this site/product/store is as popular as it is without this feature - it really made me think I was missing something. But nope.

I hope this gets resolved so I can switch to SquareSpace from a competitor - I like the looks!

I am having the same issue with taxes in MA. Clothing under a certain amount is not taxable, but other items in the store are. An option to make an item tax exempt would do the trick. Hoping this changes soon. Please keep us posted!

I feel this is a vital option for an e-commerce type store. This puts a huge difference between following appropriate tax laws and ensuring your customers paying what they are supposed to be paying. Wish this was an option now, but I haven't seen it being one yet.

So curious....So WHAT is the solution???  Do you apply 6.25 to everything and give people tax refunds, not apply taxes, or remove those items require tax in MA?

Same problem. I sell non taxable food and taxable prepared foods and events. I just scrapped my old website and moved to squarespace on the advice of other sellers. I'm already regretting it.

How flexible taxing not be a priority?

HEY THERE SQUARESPACE and the award winning 24/7 customer service!!

Such a simple fix on your end - What are you waiting for? Surely you're making enough money to put somebody on this project. Add a tax override for specific items. How long could that take? Can't you imagine that many of your users are selling many items, some of which may not fall under the blanket of needing to be taxed like all others? These small things add up to people wanting to migrate platforms.

Hi, I am encountering a huge limitation with Squarespace as it does not seem to be possible to add different tax rates depending on product or product category.

In Germany, food and books are taxed with 7%, everything else is taxed with 19%. But Squarespace only gives me one fixed tax rate. (Which means I am losing 12% of my sales in the above mentioned categories.)

Huge bummer, as this makes the platform incompatible with the German market.

Is there any way to work around this? Or is Squarespace planning to fix this?

watching here - I'm having a similar problem. Client site, legislation states some classes are taxable, others aren't. So, we have to work out which products stay live, and which ones need to come down! Crazy approach. Can tax rate be a selection on Product Page, like Forms?

This is a necessary update. PLEASE!! As many have mentioned a simple checkbox to apply tax or not to a product and ability to set a store default... NEEDED!

not going to do much by asking Squarespace here on the forums for a feature that is crucial/essential to running a business. you need to log in a ticket and make the request there so they see it. they have mentioned before they do not really monitor the forums for feature requests.
