Sales Tax Exempt

Allow your customers who are Tax Exempt to checkout tax free while collecting their Tax ID Number and State in which it's issued (Frontend & Backend Supported).



This extension will add a "Tax Exempt" checkbox to stage 5 of the one-page checkout where a customer can tick off the check box for "Tax Exempt" and it will display 1 text input field that is requiring them to input their Tax ID number and 1 drop down field which is requiring them to select their state (defaults to their state inputted during stage 1 of one-page checkout).


In the backend it will add a check box in the Payment Method section for Tax Exempt status.


The customers input is displayed in the Payment Information part of your order screen in Admin for your records.



This Tax Exempt option is also available in the Admin order screen as well, perfect when your processing orders over the phone with Tax Exempt customers!




Use California Address and during step 5 it'll show option for "Tax Exempt" and will remove tax if filled in.

Is tax ID stored for future orders?

We're interested in purchasing the extension, but are our customers going to have to input their tax info every time they place an order? We have some customers (distributors) who place several orders a day and we don't want to inconvience them by forcing them to have to enter their tax info every time. Also, is the number validated in any way? Or is it possible for any user to input a fake ID and get away with it? Please confirm. Thanks!
Asked by: zacatfbl
You (Admin) or the Customer can now save their "Sales Tax ID" on their account. So it's repopulated on future orders automatically in our new 2.6 version. There is no validation of the "Tax ID" customer provides you. You'd have to validate this outside of Magento.

Tax Except for Certain States Only

Is there a way to configure the module so that it only attempts to collect a tax ID for certain states? We only charge tax in 2 states where we have a presence. We don't want the module to try and charge tax for all the states except for when they provide the exemption number.
Asked by: MonoMachines
Currently, we do not. But will put it on the list for potential future development.

In our new version just released, Version 2.6, you can store customer tax ID in their accounts. In our new version 2.6 at checkout it'll automatically apply "Sales Tax Exempt" and prefill their number. Saving you multiple steps each order!

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by EmJaInteractive

Sales Tax Exempt is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and easy We had to implement a tax-field in the orderprocess. As we all know: it's not that easy. After some research I found this extension. Installation was as easy as it could be, and the extension just did what it should do: adding tax-fields to the check-out process. We're running IWD OneStepCheckout, works like a charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Retailer Should Use This I purchased and installed this for several clients (separate licenses of course). Initially in testing there was a jquery conflict with my theme but once I sent the console report to the support email address the developers had a custom file for me to use the next morning. The plugin is great, good support and really, most retailers should consider it. For the price and the opportunity to get orders from government agencies or other tax exempt organizations its really a no-brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I got it installed and working without issue. One additional feature request I got from my client was to autofill the tax exempt information when a user is logged in. I accomplished this by altering /app/design/frontend/default/my_template/template/emja_taxrelief/onepage/payment/additional.phtml Below the </script> on line 17 I added: <?php $tax_exempt_number = ''; $has_tax_relief = 0; /* Check if the customer is logged in or not */ if (Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->isLoggedIn()) { /* Get the customer data */ $customer = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomer(); /* Get the customer's full name */ //$fullname = $customer->getName(); $tax_exempt_number = $customer->getResource()->getAttribute('tax_exempt_number')->getFrontend()->getValue($customer); } $groupId = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomerGroupId(); $group = Mage::getModel('customer/group')->load($groupId); if ($group->getCustomerGroupCode() == 'Tax Exempt') { $has_tax_relief = 1; ?> <script type="text/javascript"> var $b = jQuery.noConflict(); $b("#customer-tax-relief-info").css('display', 'block'); $b(".emja_taxrelief_regions").removeAttr ("disabled"); $b("#customer-tax-relief-code").removeAttr ("disabled"); </script> <?php } ?> And then I changed the two inputs like this: <input id="customer-has-tax-relief" name="payment[customer_has_tax_relief]" type="checkbox" class="checkbox" value="<?php echo $has_tax_relief; ?>" <?php if($has_tax_relief==1){echo "checked=checked"; } ?> onclick="this.checked ? ($(this).value=1) && ($('customer-tax-relief-info').show()) : ($(this).value=0) && ($('customer-tax-relief-info').hide())"> And <div class="input-box"><input id="customer-tax-relief-code" name="payment[tax_relief_code]" type="text" class="input-text<?php echo $this->isTaxReliefCodeRequired() ? ' required-entry' : ''?>" autocomplete="off" value="<?php echo $tax_exempt_number; ?>"></div>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Extension but necessary! This is the only tax exempt extension I could find for Magento and it to me is a necessary thing anyone would need for their cart. Price is right. I had some conflicts with my install because our cart is so heavily customized and we did have to pay an extra fee to fix this. But it was very fair considering or non-stock cart. Works great now! Super support!

Rated out of 5 by from arcarocket was able to customize this extension for me to do exactly what I wanted. The fee was very reasonable and they turned the project around quickly. If anything comes up again in the future I wouldn't hesitate to work with this company again.
