Need to be able charge TAX from $0 menu item
« on: January 12, 2017, 12:01:37 PM »
We have Micros 3700 5.5v and recently are in need of charging 7c tax for a bag that we don't charge our customers for.  It looks like Micros doesn't have an option for flat tax rate and all taxes are calculated based on menu item price which if is $0 therefore tax is not calculated.  I need to create a button that a bag will be ring up as not all bags required to be tax.  Tax if a flat 7c and it must be added to a bag any time is ringed up.  Any idea hot to accomplish the goal?  Help would be appreciated.

I know this is old and you probably figured it out but this sounds like something a macro could accomplish.  Ring up the item, discount it to zero but don't forgive the tax.

Thanks, indeed it was one of the options but we decided not go to that direction as discount would mess up our reports.  Instead we created a menu item called Chicago Bag Tax with the price of 0.07 with tax forgiven option.  We ring it up any time a customer gets a bag and have reporting configured to handle and accounting to properly distribute it so it goes against taxes.  I'm surprise that Micros doesn't have this type of option build in.  Thanks for your suggestions.
