Product Tax Classes

From the Configuration Menu, click Taxes → Product Tax Classes

Tax classes allow store admins to assign different tax rates to different products, as is required by law in some areas. While many stores will be able to account for all the tax rates they need with the default classes that come preloaded in the software, new classes can easily be added from this page. Existing classes can also be edited or removed.

To create a new tax class, simply click 'Add New' and fill in the required fields.

The *Tax Class is the Name of your new tax class.

The Tax Code is optional and serves as a notes field for store administrators, or can be used to match with special tax codes when using the Avalara AvaTax service. Note when using the Avalara tax service that the shipping tax class should be set to "FR" for the Tax Code value.

The Display Order was introduced in MSx and is used to determine the order of application for order-level Promotions (see below for detailed example).

Products are assigned to tax classes through Manage Products, through the Tax Class dropdown menu.
