We currently have multiple products sold in different categories. I would love the ability to track tax exempt sales in a separate total.
I am aware I could set this up by listing tax exempt items first, then adding a total between them and the next accounts/groups.
The problem is that we have tax exempt items in separate areas, an example: we sell honey, as 1 item in a product line of many items. Honey is tax exempt, but the other items are not. We track the line, with a distinction between the exempt and normal items. Then we also sell mead, normally a taxed item. When we ship the mead out of state, the tax is collected by another company and distributed to the various states on their end. Since they are shipped out of state, we do not pay state sales tax and therefore they are also exempt. We track the mead sales separate from the honey (and other items) lines.
I would love the ability to show tax exempt items as a total for sales tax reporting. Since the chart of accounts is not supposed to show the same values multiple times (tax exempt being shown twice in this example) maybe have a special location it could be seen at a glance on the summary.
This may be difficult to implement and not important enough. But it is an idea.
