Canadian Shipping tax


Recommended Posts

Hello again


one more question


I installed the Canadian Tax Module. It works great I now have two seperate taxes, PST and GST. The only problem is that it does not charge tax on the shipping.


So I looked for the shipping tax module (I wish it was in english), which I found and installed.


I went to the tax module:


Display Tax Groups



Now the tax is applied to the shipping as well but the total is incorrect.


for example:


Sub-Total: $12.79CAD

Flat Rate (Best Way): $5.00CAD

GST ( 7% ): $1.25CAD

PST ( 7% ): $1.25CAD

Total: $19.64CAD


Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

Hi Doug,


I had this same problem a while ago. I recall that I couldn't find

a fix online so I had to rewrite the orders_total.php function. (and

possibly others stuff)


It was a non-trivial fix so I'm not sure I could explain it correctly.

If no one else has a solution, can you post an example with easier

numbers (like 100.00).


Also a copy of your orders_total.php and we can see if we can work through it. Feel free to send me a note if you think that would be
