What we did is create a "dialup single" and a "dialup multi" ... the dialup
single is a non-taxed item in admin and the multi is taxed... The dialup
single is used for the bulk of our dialup customers which meet the $25

We also created a "$25 exemption" service that is actually a -$1.97 (our
tax rate is .07875). That service is added to any account that has the
"dialup multi" or other access that is over $25... like ISDN. This way ANY
account that has the "multi" or "ISDN" SHOULD have the "$25 exemption"...
makes it a little easier for our people to remember.

We basically do a similar thing... We created a "20% Virtual" and "20% Web"
to handle the few virtual and business sites we house. The discount is
reflective of the cost of the service... Whatever the cost of the service
we do the math and deduct the tax charged on 20% of that service... again,
ANY Web hosting service SHOULD have the discount...

Hope that helps (and makes sense)... if someone can poke holes in it let me

Thanks, David
