Default [Q] Call forwarding with NFC

I recently installed an android tablet in my car. Currently when I enter my car, I scan an NFC tag and it disables wifi and enables tethering to get my tablet connected. I have installed google voice with a google number on my tablet. On my phone: if I go to Settings -> Call -> Call Forwarding -> enable "always forward" to my google number then i recieve calls to my tablet... which is great. Thing is I can't figure out how to set up that nfc tag to toggle call forwarding. Anybody know how to do this? My phone is ATT HTC ONE M8 btw. I have trigger and tasker apps but can't figure this one out for the life of me.

Thanks for the help, my phone now automatically does call forwarding.
Now I need to figure out how to make an exit task so that when i scan the same nfc, my phone dials a number to deactivate the call forwarding.
Any ideas?

Are you using tasker to do it? And do you use Bluetooth in the car? Might have an easy suggestion for you if both are yes.

Well because you're using NFC I'm not sure you can really use an exit task but you can create exactly the same thing with a task and an 'if' statement. Something like a profile based on the scan of your NFC that launches a task that does one thing if your connected to a certain Bluetooth and another if your not. I have profiles setup for in the car based on that Bluetooth and others based on Bluetooth headphones... Let me know if you want more info or help creating the statements.
