$110 NY State clothing tax on discounted items?

I know how to create a tax override for clothing and footwear items priced below $110 so that customers in NY are not charged based on this exemption: http://www.tax.ny.gov/bus/st/sales_tax_clothing_exemption.htm

The only thing I'm unclear on is this: what if an item's original price is above $110, but the customer uses a discount code to lower the price of the order below $110? Is the item still technically priced at above $110 so they get charged tax?

Hey Patrick,

That's a good question, and something that we should probably look into. I'm going to send this over to our tax team to take a look and see what's what here.

 

Talk to you soon!

Patrick, how do you report on your taxes? We can't for the life of us figure out how to actually generate a useful tax report for tax exempt items since NY wants us to report total sales for those items.
