Help Understanding Tax Zones....


Recommended Posts

I am having some issues understanding the tax aspect of the oscommerce system. I set up a site for a shop in Nebraska, www.mts-diesel.com. As I understand how this works, a store must collect taxes on items sold in their state, but more times than not, not in other states.


When an order is being placed how does the website know if someone is in one state or another when placing the order?

In admin>> locations/taxes you will create a new tax zone with your home state in it. Then, enter the rate in the tax rate area. Ensure all of your products are assigned the tax class and you are done.


Now, anyone from the state selected will be charged the tax rate you entered.
