Apply Discount Codes to current bookings
Right now, applying a discount to an owner or agent originated booking/hold does not change the taxes due from the original total. I could discount any amount from the nightly rate and the taxes still reflect the original charge.

Hi Laura! Thanks for your idea.
At the moment, the Discount codes are still working properly (guests apply the code when they book directly and the rent/taxes are calculated accordingly). In your scenario, it's a "discount" initiated from your end by manually inputting a negative amount to the order details.
By design, the way our calculation works is top-down, starting at the top and moving down to the bottom on a line by line basis. So there is Rent, with Taxes calculated based on Rent, and they both make up the Sub-total.
By the time it gets to the manually input negative amount, it's already past Rent / Taxes and at Sub-Total. The reduction will affect the Sub-Total only, not the Rent/Taxes themselves, which are already sealed in at this stage.
We will consider your feedback for future developments. For now, you can use it as is (input from the booking phase) and taxes will need manual editing.
