    Hello there!

    This appears NOT to override the general tax settings in the cart. We setup the cart to charge sales tax on orders shipping to WA state. Here is the form code I just did for the Gift Certificates. We'd like to have NO TAX on the gift certificate itself, but are required to charge tax on mailing the certificate. Goofy, I know. Here is the code I'm using:

    <form action=""; method="post">
    <input name="userid" type="hidden" value="92235932">
    <input type="hidden" name="units" value=".15" />
    <input name="product" type="hidden" value="My Angel Gift Certificate">
    <input name="price" type="hidden" value="24.95">
    <input type="hidden" name="tax" value="0">
    <input type="hidden" name="return" value=""; />
    <input type="submit" value="Buy Now!">

    When testing it out, the cart still adds 7% sales tax on the cost of the certificate + its shipping fee, rather than taxing ONLY the shipping fee.
