Thank you for pointing this out, I replied to the ticket:
We created a “taxable” field for gift certificates, especially.
For all products, it’s “true” by default.
For all gift certificates, it’s “false” by default.
You have several options on how to reach what you want:
- Create a new Tax Class, let’s say No-tax, define a zero tax rate for this class, and assign it to the particular products.
- To simplify this process, we have a paid addon for that case: https://market.x-cart.com/addons/tax-exemption.html
