We have bundles that include both tax and non tax items. For example our upgraded tasting for 2 includes 2 wine tastings (non taxable), 2 free glasses (non tax because we’re giving them away) 2 dessert wine tastings (non tax) and a cheese plate (should be taxed because it’s prepared food). As a bundle we have to choose to tax the entire bundle and therefore it could be considered tax fraud because we’re “stealing” that other 7% from our customers. If we choose to not tax the entire bundle then it can be considered tax fraud for not charging tax on prepared foods.
We sell these bundles online so our customers can purchase their tasting vouchers ahead of time so it’s not feasible to ask them to add all of the items to their cart separately or to add 2 different bundles (1 containing non tax items and 1 containing tax items) to their cart.
Has anyone else run into this problem? Anyone have a solution?
