No Sales Tax on Events (tickets)

  • Topics: 1

    My state does not charge sales tax for services (my events are services) and I would like to use the following snippit (which I found in another discussion) to disable sales tax in my events calendar, but I don’t know how to use it…any direction you could provide would be great!

    add_action( ‘event_tickets_after_save_ticket’, ‘tribe_disable_taxes_ticket_product’, 10, 2 );
    function tribe_disable_taxes_ticket_product( $post_id, $ticket ) {
    update_post_meta( $ticket->ID, ‘_tax_status’, ‘none’ );
    update_post_meta( $ticket->ID, ‘_tax_class’, ‘zero-rate’ );

    Hi Ellen!

    Thanks for getting in touch with us! Let me help you with that.

    To make use of that snippet you will need to copy and paste it into your active theme’s functions.php file.

    You can also use a third party plugin like this one > that adds the ability to paste the snippet directly in the wp-admin backend.

    I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions and I’ll be happy to help 🙂
