Updating Item and Room Tax Settings

ThinkReservations allows you to add a tax to the following:

  • Rooms
  • Additional Guest Fees
  • [Room Level] Pet Fees
  • Items

To have ThinkReservations apply one or more taxes to one of the above, you will check the appropriate boxes in settings...

 

To update Room/Additional Guest/Pet Fee Taxes:

 

  1. In ThinkReservations, navigate to Settings, and then Rooms.
  2. Click on the room that you wish to edit.
  3. Scroll down to the TAXES section. There are three sections:
    Taxes for Rooms
    Taxes for Additional Guest Fees
    Taxes for Pet Fees
  4. Check the box next to the tax or taxes that should be associated with the Room, Additional Guest Fees, and Pet Fees. If the box is checked, the tax will be collected moving forward.
  5. Check your work and click the black Save button at the bottom.


Please note: The changes that you make to taxes will not affect existing reservations.


To recalculate a single bill, you can delete and re-add the room. When you add the room again, it will calculate taxes at the new settings. Please take care when performing this step.


You can use the Recalculate Taxes feature found in Settings, and then Taxes to make bulk tax changes to existing bills/reservations.
