Hello, after talking to customer support they directed me to here.

Our business sells two kinds of product one that is a no tax item (food) and others that are taxes (liquor). There is no way in their system to make this happen. They suggested maybe seeing if someone has a way to customize it so that it does? Anyone can help out?

If you want to use the Squarespace commerce features, the only workaround is to add the 0% items as services instead of physical products. This is because there's an option to set VAT at 0% on services. For example, here's a screenshot of the checkout with two products, one configured as a physical product and the other (the coffee) set up as a service product with no VAT.

As with everything, there's a downside to this. Real service products don't require physical delivery, so the checkout won't prompt for shipping information unless there's a physical product in the cart too.

There are no other workarounds (even with code or addons) to amend the way Squarespace commerce deals with VAT. This is because VAT is handled on the backend of Squarespace - the part that only Squarespace themselves have access to. To charge different rates of VAT per product, you'll need to use another platform for the checkout (such as Shopify buttons), or switch entirely to another platform.
