    Here in Utah we have an inordinate number of Square users, and I have sadly been having to walk away from a number of potential sales because our MX Express product does not allow the merchant to add a tax field as does Square. Recently, I brought a merchant on board that is a cosmetologist and she has been very frustrated with our app, saying that the other stylists in her shop all use Square and tell her how easy it is to calculate the tax without having to do it manually.  She called me letting me know she would like to cancel and move over to Square, but I called in to the support desk and was told we are in the process of adding that feature to our app, so she said she would stay with us a bit longer, but to please call her as soon as the new version goes live. Can you please give me an idea of the time frame we are looking at to make this available to our merchants?  I can't imagine it would be a very complex fix, but I am not an IT expert.  Thanks for your consideration.

    Basically have a toggle switch that applies tax to any item regardless of how added....inventory item or quick add.... so you do not have to go back and add the tax if it was not included in original creation of item. If you input a quick add for $10 then the total would be $10.70 even if the item does not have a tax category assigned...... does that make sense? Haha seems more difficult to explain then I thought

    Currently, on Quick Pay and MX Express app, the tax fields are not added to the total. For example: if the item sold costs $10 and you charge 7% tax rate. You currently have to manually enter $10.07 when taking a payment. Are you looking for the same to be true with this request, so you would still enter $10.07 but rather than having to manually list how much of the total was tax it would do that for you based on your default unless you specify otherwise? 

    Or are you asking that if you enter $10 and then have your default tax rate of 7% automatically apply that the number will jump to $10.07 for you?
