For a printable view of this document, click here.


This document describes how ‘tax exemptions less than a certain amount’ work within GolfNow Reservations. This feature allows a sales item when sold for less than a specified amount to be exempt from taxes.

An example of using this feature is the “Sales and Use Tax Rates on Clothing and Footwear” rule for New York Sales Tax. This rule states that if the following items are sold for less than $110, they are exempt from the New York State sales tax:

  • Clothing
  • Footwear
  • Items used to make or repair exempt closing

The information contained in this document pertains to Reservations 2016 versions and newer.

Set up

Item sub-category

All less than tax exemptions are based on a sales item’s “Item Sub-Category” definition and not at the individual sales item level

In the Item Sub-Category Setup (Setup Tab | Report Structure button | Item Sub-Category), create entries that will contain sales items which the less than tax exemption will be applied to. In the case of New York State sales tax, you might have entries like Shirts, Coats, Shows, Sweaters, etc.
