Tax exemptions data through API

When retrieving a tax item from the catalog API no information for the ‘exempt if’ are displayed. How can someone determine the amount needing to be paid for tax when there is an exemption before submitting a payment or order?

e.g. catalog api response for tax

  "object": {
    "type": "TAX",
    "updated_at": "2022-07-26T00:52:28.724Z",
    "created_at": "2022-07-06T21:17:47.882Z",
    "version": 1658796748724,
    "is_deleted": false,
    "present_at_all_locations": true,
    "tax_data": {
      "name": "Sales Tax",
      "calculation_phase": "TAX_SUBTOTAL_PHASE",
      "inclusion_type": "ADDITIVE",
      "percentage": "8.875",
      "applies_to_custom_amounts": true,
      "enabled": true,
      "tax_type_id": "us_sales_tax",
      "tax_type_name": "Sales Tax"

How the item looks in Square with the exemption item:

I’m able to reproduce this. I’m checking with the team. :slightly_smiling_face:

Any update on this one? My app company said they’re still running into this issue (and thus, my app doesn’t know when to remove sales tax)

I posted this on the day everything went down, so I’m guessing it got lost in the shuffle. @Bryan-Square - any updates on this issue?

At this time the exempt tax options aren’t currently available in the API. We’re constantly working to improve our features based on feedback like this, so I’ll be sure to share your request to the API product team. :slightly_smiling_face:
