I want to have a customer to be able to enter a tax exemption number in the customer form on checkout and receive the tax exemption on the order they are making. I know there is a tax exemption in the customer table that gives customers a tax exemption when they order but I need it for customers that don't yet exists in the customers table.

Can this be achieved with the tax exemption feature in already in the cart

VPASP has a VAT number exemption feature that can be set through the admin - xvatnumber - which works for European based tax exemptions.

If you are in the US, you might be able to modify this feature to suit but I don't think it will work by default.

Hey bwalz -

I am having the same issue - I need a tax exempt option on checkout for US customers in my state, what did you end up doing to solve your issue? Just curious...

Thanks!

Lauren

In the admin make these settings.

xcustomerothercaptions= Kansas Tax Exempt No.
xcustomerotherfields = taxexempt
xcustomerotherfieldsinorder = Yes

Add the field taxexempt to the and orders tables it already exsits in the customers table

In shoptax.asp make the following change

NOTE: this is for version 6.09

line 23

'if lcase(custrs("taxexempt")) = "yes" OR lcase(custrs("taxexempt")) = "true" then
if len(trim(custrs("taxexempt"))) > 0 then

This was done in version 6.09. Version 6.5 is different in shoptax.asp. The above code is found on line 341. I have not tried it in version 6.5 so I don't know if it will work but I also don't see why it wouldn't
I am not doing any validation on the taxexempt field.
