Managing tax-exempt customers

Some customers, like wholesalers and nonprofit organizations, can be exempt from taxes. You can mark such buyers as non-taxable. Now they can check out in your store without having tax applied to their order.
To exempt a customer from paying taxes in your store, you should mark them as non-taxable in your store admin.
To mark customers as tax-exempt:
  1. Go to your Online Store dashboard, then click on the My Sales > Customers link.
  2. Find the customer on the list by name or email and click on the pencil icon to edit the customer’s profile:
  3. Enable tax-exempt status from the drop-down menu.
  4. Save the changes.
That’s it. When you mark the customer as tax-exempt, they won’t pay any taxes while buying products in your store.
You can always change this status in the Tax-exempt column on the Customers page.
