Beta Feature | Advanced Sales Tax

Welcome to Square’s Beta Program for Advanced Sales Taxes. We’re excited to share this new feature with you.

Get Started

With this feature, you can set up your tax rule to automatically exclude taxes for orders that are applicable to your region. For New York based Sellers, this means you will be able to automatically exclude New York State’s 4% sales tax on clothing, footwear, and items used to make or repair exempt clothing sold for less than $110 per item or pair.

Currently this feature is only available in your Square Dashboard.
