Tax amounts are aggregated for all items and checks

The tax amounts for marketplace facilitator orders are aggregated for each guest check in an order. Tax amounts that apply to specific items in an order are not reported separately from other items. For example, if an item in an order is subject to an alcoholic beverage tax, that tax amount is aggregated with the other tax amounts for the order in Toast platform reporting information.

Marketplace facilitators report the tax amounts for each order when they submit the orders to the Toast platform. The Toast platform divides the sum of all tax amounts proportionately by item price among all items in all checks in an order.

The following diagram shows the tax amount aggregation for a marketplace facilitator order that includes items that are taxed at different rates. In this example the item prices are all equal.

Marketplace facilitator orders sum the tax amounts for all items in all checks and then divide the total tax amount proportionately by item price among all items when the data is stored in the Toast platform. This includes item types that are taxed at different rates.
