You can apply tax to your packages and items with just a few clicks!

PLEASE NOTE: In HoneyBook, tax is applied to specific goods and services. If you’re seeing the tax amount unintentionally showing $0, you’ll likely want to go through your file and check off tax for the appropriate packages/items by following the steps below.

To apply tax to a package or item:

1. First, locate the package or item you’d like to apply tax to. You can do so in a package template, or in any file that contains services.

  • HoneyBook Tip: We recommend setting tax on a template level – that way, whenever you use the template, tax will already be applied to the package or item. You can always remove tax on a file-by-file basis.

2. Under the Tax column, check off the tax box to apply tax.
