Event and Membership Taxes - We need to be able to charge different taxes for events and memberships
Event and Membership Taxes - We need to be able to charge different taxes for events and memberships. In Canada, membership dues are taxed based on the province of residence. Taxes for event registrations are collected by the province in which the meeting is being held. But, for the province of Québec, the provincial tax is collected only for its residents. Meaning a non-resident of that province is taxed only the federal sales tax and not the provincial. Residents are taxed both taxes, the Federal and the Provincial taxes. This being said, we really need to be able to have a tax option for registration and a second tax option for membership dues.
As described in the description of this issue it is crucial for associations that have national memberships and local events. The current situation is a significant limitation and would seem to only need a further option or two in order to facilitate the stated needs.

Same requirement in Europe: as per regulations we need to be able to apply different tax rules for membership and events... and even different tax rules for events depending on the country in which the event occurs.
This is not a wish, it simply is mandatory as per regulations! If not possible, we will have to generate our invoices out of WildApricot which is a pitty of course :-(
Certain items in the optional section for members sign-up are non-taxable. However, the membership fee itself is taxable. Currently, the tax is calculated after the total is generated. Need to find a way in which certain items can have an optional mark to exempt those items from tax calculation.
Thanks for posting, Christiane.

Taxes - We need to be able to charge different taxes for events and memberships. As it stands in Canada, membership dues are taxed based on the province of residence. Event registrations are taxed per the province in which the meeting takes place. But when holding a meeting in Québec, we need to charge the PST (Provincial Sales Tax) only to the registrants residing in the province of Québec.
Our wish is for WA to have one tax option for registration and a second tax option for Registrations.

Thanks for the clarification. Unfortunately it does not look like this particular scenario will be addressed in version 4.4 - it is possible to enable/disable taxes in each registration type in each event but no way to use different rates. This will have to be addressed in future versions.
Our association will have meetings or seminars in various provinces where members can attend, whether local or from other provinces. In BC we'd charge 12% whether the attendee is from BC or Alberta, for example. (By the way, BC is reverting back to GST or 5% in April of next year.) In Alberta, it would be 5% regardless of the province the delegate is from.
