Even though most taxes are automatically calculated on Shopify, store owners could have full control over how much tax is charged for a certain product by overriding tax rates. This can also be done to specify the special tax rates for particular shipping destinations or for tax-exempt customers.
For instance, overrides can be specified for exemptions of state tax in the U.S., exemptions of provincial tax in Canada, exemptions of VAT in the UK…
If you want to set up tax overrides for particular products, you could create a collection consisting of all the tax-exempt products, then set up the override for that whole collection.
If there are only a few products that are tax-exempt on your list, then you can choose to prevent taxes from individually applying to these particular products.
