In this post, we’re going to discuss about creating collections for products that need a tax override. Even though most taxes are automatically calculated on Shopify, store owners could have full control over how much tax is charged for a certain product by overriding tax rates. This can also be done to specify the special tax rates for particular shipping destinations or for tax-exempt customers.

If you want to set a particular product to be exempt from sales tax, you need to first group those products in a collection. This article would show you how to create a collection for products that need a tax override on Shopify.

How to set a product to be exempt from sales tax on Shopify

Step 1: Visit Products, then go to Collections

After logging in your Shopify admin, click the Products session, and then continue clicking the Collections field.

Step 3: (Optional) Click Manage {(#click-manage}

If you find the need to hide your collection from any of your store’s sales channels, then in the Sales channels section on the right, click Manage.

A pop-up window will appear. Check/uncheck the checkbox next to the name of a sales channel to make the collection visible or not to this sales channel.
