Hi I am in Florida and over 90% of my revenue is tax exempt (medical devices). So the tax is on the non exempt revenue (accessories). 

It's not something I collect from the customer like the sales tax, it's an additional fee/tax on non exempt revenue (1% of non exempt total revenue) in my county)

Trying to figure out how to enter this is GNUcash. If there is not a typical way I guess I could create an expense account and split up the amount of tax paid 

(for example if non exempt revenue is $1,000, sales tax would be $75 (7.5%tax) already calculated by GNUcash. But I don't pay $75, I pay $85 because 1% discretionary tax on $1,000 =$10)
