Tax preference

Currently when a Voucher or Gift offer has been redeemed the taxes that the guest is responsible for are based on the value of the experience. In some cases, taxes must be based on the value of the purchase price of the Voucher or Gift offer. In this case, you will need to adjust your taxes and fee to accommodate this, by using our Tax Promotional Value toggle. Below are examples of having this feature enabled or disabled. 

Note: You will want to read over how to set up Vouchers and Gift Offers before setting your Tax Preferences.

Note: When restrictions are not honored, regardless of whether the Tax Promotional Value is enabled or disabled, the gift value will be assessed the same. This is because the full purchase price is being used to cover some of the balance, and no promotional value is being given/used.
