Yes, it is accumulative, and calculated month-to-month. An example was
given by the Comptroller as follows:

$24.95 ISDN Dialup Acct
$10.00 Additional Dialup

$9.95 is the taxable amount for the given month.

So. . You would need to be able to flag a service as either taxable, or
non-taxable. Then at the time of generating invoices, all taxable
services for 1 month would be added up, subtract $25 from the total, and
if it's a positive number multiply by .0825 (at least down here in
Houston) to determine the tax charged for a given month.
