What is a Compound Tax?
In some countries you might have to collect more than one tax from your customers. It is for you to pay to your local province and another to the federal authority.
In certain cases, the provincial tax is applied on the total that includes the item or invoice amount as well as the federal tax amount. Such taxes are called as Compound Taxes.

What if I uncheck the “This is a value added tax” box?

It will be considered as a Non-Value Added Tax. In some provinces, tax on purchases cannot be reclaimed. In this case, the tax cannot be treated as a liability but an expense.
