As a workaround, here is something I have tested in the QA process:

Create a service whose cost is -2.06 (.0825 x 25.00). This service
should not be taxable. Other services should be taxable, and the region
your customers are in should be default taxable.

For any customer whose services are always more than $25.00, add this
service as a recurring service called something like "tax credit" to
their MBR.

The invoice will be calculated with correct tax, minus the $2.06 which
they do not have to pay based on the new tax law.

In order to calculate the tax you owe, generate a report that adds up
all of the tax columns in the invoices table, and subtract from it the
total service revenue for the "tax credit" service.
