If you created your tiers on or after May 20, 2020, you can still use our Advanced Sales Tax settings to adjust how sales tax applies to your benefits. All you need to do is scroll down to the bottom of the page in your tier editor, open the Advanced settings and go to Sales Tax where you can use ‘Adjust benefit value’ setting.
About Adjusting benefit value, using percentages
Adjusting benefit value is a way for you to tell us the relative value of the benefits in each of your tiers. Once you’ve done this, we’ll be able to apply sales tax to just a portion of some pledges in places that allow us to do so. And we will know what portion of a given pledge should be taxed.
For example: If you have a tier that includes Discord access and a sticker, you can adjust the benefit value setting to tell us that the sticker makes up 10% of the value of that tier. Then, in places where the sticker is taxable, but not Discord, we can apply tax to just 10% of the pledge amount. If we don’t have these percentages set by you, we will have to apply sales tax to 100% of each pledge, in all locations where sales tax applies.
How to use this setting
Navigate to your and find the tier you want to adjust for sales tax. Click Edit tier.
You must have at least two benefits listed for any tier before you can access the “Adjust benefit value settings’. If you only have one benefit in a tier, it can only equal 100% of the tier value.
You can choose to distribute values evenly between all the benefits in this tier by checking the box next to “Distribute values evenly”. In this case, if you have 4 benefits, each would be given a 25% value. If you have 5, they would each be given 20%, and so on.
If you’d like to specify your own percentages, leave that box unchecked and enter each benefit’s value in the corresponding boxes. Please note that this has to add up to 100% total.
