Configure your store's taxes from the store > taxes portion of the dashboard.
An important note: of course, IndieMade can't give tax advice. IndieMade provides a means for you to collect taxes, but it is entirely up to you, as a site owner, to research and properly apply the local laws regarding the collecting of tax that apply to you and your goods or services. If you don't know what to do, it's probably best to consult an accountant or other tax specialist.
You can set up as many tax rules as you need. Each tax rule consists of a name (which will be shown to your customers), a country, a state or province, and a rate. For U.S. states, you can also provide a zip code or range of zip codes. You can also specify whether tax should be applied to shipping costs (by default, they are not).
All existing tax rates are displayed in a table.
The delivery address given by your customer affects which tax rules apply. In this example, if a customer was having her order shipped to an address in Quebec, then two separate tax lines would appear on her invoice: one for QST at 9.975% and a second for GST at 5%. Any shipping costs the customer may have incurred will not affect the tax collected.
Add a New Tax Rate
To add a new tax rate, click on Add a New Tax Rate. You will be shown a form to fill in like the following.
If there is a single tax rate for the entire country, choose All of country for the state/province pulldown. For the United States, you may assign a single rate to the entire state, or you can further specify it by a zip code or range of zip codes.
