In the Aloha POS system, taxes typically calculate based on the location of the store; however, some states and local tax jurisdictions require that the tax rate of the delivery destination be applied, for orders that you deliver. This requirement impacts any location that offers delivery, such as Pizza delivery restaurants, and those that provide catering and other order delivery formats.
Note: Tax locales work in conjunction with the Aloha Takeout ‘Tax by Destination’ function. Using the tax locales you define here, you can associate the appropriate tax to a delivery destination. Refer to your local tax jurisdiction guidelines and regulations for details.
