I’m in Alabama and our back to school sales tax free shopping weekend begins tonight at midnight. I cannot figure out how to override the sales tax for this weekend only. Can anyone help?

This is an accepted solution.
Thanks for reaching out!
Just to gather some additional context, are you wanting to allow only the state of Alabama to not charge taxes on your orders? If so, you can override the taxes on a collection. Once the collection has been created and you have successfully added the products you wish to no longer charge taxes. You can then navigate to Settings > Taxes > Manage (United States), and create a 0% tax override for state of Alabama.
Alternatively, if you are wanting to allow specific products to not charge taxes on your orders for all customer locations, a good method we can use is set the products to be exempt from sales tax.
Navigate to your Products
Select the product you wish to no longer charge taxes on.
Select the checkbox charge tax on this product
With that being said, changing the way you collect taxes is done manually. When you would like to charge taxes on the products once again we will need to remove the tax override created or check the box charge tax on this product.
Let me know if that works for you!
