Tax (HST) on Extra Charges as an Option
We have a situation where we need to charge HST on our club membership fee but not on a required pass through fee from an umbrella organization. It is a required fee for members. Currently it is implemented as an extra charge but there is no control over its tax status ie applying a tax. In this case there is no HST applied to the $35.00 fee but there is for our club membership fee.
Can you suggest a work around?
It would be great to have the extra charges fields have an option to apply taxes or not.

What would be actually nice is to allow more granular control of taxation on items in the online store and being able to set an override tax rate on registration types.
Adding taxation on extra charge items seems overly complex.
I agree. I have an increasing amount of clients requesting this too.
In some instances organisations have a membership fee, which is taxable, and a levy, which is not taxable.
Other organisations have a donation as part of their membership fee - in some instances this is optional. Donations of course do not incur tax.
This request and similar have now been on the wish list a while and it would be good to have this flexibility please email@example.com
Yes this would be very useful. We have members who give a set donation each time they renew in addition to their standard subscription and it currently generates GST for the full amount, which is confusing. Ability to have set (or open) donation amount added to a subscription renewal which didn't trigger extra GST would be excellent

We charge tax on Membership Fees (levels) but we don't charge tax on extra items a member may need. (parking permit, boat permit).
It would be great to be able to edit extra charges.
I'd like to see the ability to have taxable and non taxable items on the same automatically generated invoice.
i.e. Tax on my membership but no tax a donation or maintenance fee, etc.
I suppose this would be a edit to or a new field option in the member database fields area.

My issue is exporting to Quickbooks. It does not breakout the HST separately so I have to manually go in and change the invoice anyway so what good is the export to QB's

We are the same issue. Plus for Québec, GST and PST are charged only for residents of the province. All other registrants only pay the GST. Membership dues however, are based on province of residence. So we really need to be able to choose different tax rates and rules for membership and event registrations.

Yes we have the same issue. Membership fees attract HST, but our mandatory Insurance fee does not. This is a very big issue for us. WE really would like to be able to which extras get charged tax.
Is there a workaround yet???

No workaround yet, sorry. For automatic invoices (like event registration invoices) taxes are always calculated for the whole invoice.
I see the problem and will add this into our analysis queue, but this will take awhile as we are now busy with other changes.
I would be glad to here from others on this problem. Probably, there are other cases to consider.
