Sales Tax


How does one enter sales tax for each of the 50 states in the US?

For example you need to create 5% tax for California. In this case you need to perform the following steps:

1. Open your Ecwid control panel.
2. Go to the "System Settings -> Zones" page. Press the "New Zone" button.
3. Change the name of the created destination zone. Then click on the "Add state..." button and add the necessary state (i.e. "United States: California") state. Save the changes.
4. Go to the "System Settings -> Taxes" page.
5. Press the "New Tax" button.
6. Enter your tax name and define the other settings
7. Click on the 'New Rate' button. Select the zone created earlier and enter the tax rate(for example 5%). Save the changes.
If you have many destination zones, repeat step #7 for each of them.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Two more hints:

1) If you want to set up the same rate for several different states, you can create a zone consisting of these states and set up tax rate for this zone.
2) Tax calculation algorithm determines which tax to apply by looking through the configured tax rate list, top-down. When it finds a matching zone, it stops and applies the corresponding tax rate. So you can define tax rate for particular state(s), then add a rate for "USA" at the bottom of the list.
In this case, USA rate will be applied to all states except the states configured explicitly.

There is also a pre-defined zone named "Other zones" that defines tax for locations matching no zone mentioned in the rate list.

OK, got it.

I was hoping there was a more automated or table driven method to add those tax rates.

Thank you!

We will think on how to improve tax adding.
Do you have any suggestions?

Perhaps a table format that would enable fast entry of several rates with a single submit button?

Why would taxes need to be added for each state?
Customers only need to pay the tax rate for the state that the store is in, right?

So only your state and rate needs to be entered.

The only issue with this though is that within the same state, customers should not be charged tax... but they are?
