From the Configuration Menu, click Taxes → Edit States/Provinces
On this page, store admins can set up tax rates based on the state/province the customer registers with. Taxes can also be based on the country or the zip code customers specify.
NOTE: If multiple levels of taxes are set up (ie state and zip code), the customer will be charged the cumulative amount.
To change the tax rates for a state, click the Edit button next to the line you wish to edit, enter the desired values for each column, and click Update to save the changes.
Adding a State/Province
The store comes preloaded with the US and Canadian states/provinces. More states can be added, by clicking the 'Add New' button.
NOTE: The list of states on this page is what is used to generate the state dropdown menus customers see when creating addresses on the front end. If you need a new state to appear there, add it here. If you want to remove states from those menus, delete them from this page.
|State/Province||This is the name of the new addition. This will appear in full to customers in the dropdown menu during address creation|
|Abbreviation||This shortened (2-digit) value will appear on receipts.|
|Country||This is the country you wish to link the state to. The state will only appear during address creation if the customer choose the matching country.|
|Display Order||The order in which the state appears in the dropdown menu. If this is left to 1 for all states, they will be listed alphabetically.|
|Tax Shipping||If this is set to yes, shipping on orders to this state will be taxes according to the rate set.|
