Shopify Duties and Import Taxes now supports US clothing tax exemptions

Shopify's Duties and Import Tax estimations in checkout now supports applying clothing based tax exemptions in Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

When a buyer purchases a clothing product with a shipping destination in those states, and the cart is within the value thresholds of the exemption, taxes for eligible product will be set to 0%. Clothing products are identified using Shopify's product categories.

You can learn more about collecting duties and import taxes in checkout on the Shopify Help Docs.
