     Step 1: Select Create New Rule to begin creating your new Tax Exemption rule.

     Step 2: If desired, you can select the box for Current Store Only to only display the rules for the store you are currently logged into.

     Step 3: Type in a name for your rule.

     Step 4: Enter the cost in the Tax Free Ceiling field to declare up to what dollar value your items will be sold without tax.                                                                                                              (E.g. $200: Everything below $200 will be sold with no tax).

     Step 5: Taxable Amount Deduction will deduct a particular amount from the cost of the item before tax is calculated.

Example for Step 5:

Tax Free Ceiling = $200.00

Taxable Amount Deduction = $100.00

Item cost = $250.00

Because the item cost ($250.00) is above the ceiling ($200.00), you will only charge tax based on the difference of the Item cost and the Taxable Amount Deduction. Which in this case would be $150.00 and calculated as: Item cost ($250.00) - Taxable Amount Deduction ($100.00) = $150.00. Let's say this is applied to Tax1 which in this example is 12%, then the 12% tax will only be applied to the $150.00 which = to $18.00 for this particular example.

     Step 6: Select which tax to apply the rule to in this field. (to apply it to more than one type of tax, you must create a second rule for an additional tax)

     Step 7:  **NOTE** Before saving the rule, make sure to build your query for which  applicable items (See: Building a query for more details). Select Save to finalize the rule that you have created and apply it to your inventory.
