Pro+Store Automated Tax Calculation
You have the choice to either set taxes manually, country by country and even state by state, which obviously can get very complicated.
Or for users from the US, Canada, Australia and Europe the store calculates the tax rates automatically based on the store and customer's location. On the checkout the customer will be charged a proper tax rate according to country and regional tax rules.
Tax laws are constantly changing. Country, state or even city government may apply new tax rates that a business owner is expected to keep up with. We will stay up to date on the tax law.
Once enabled, the automatic tax rate will determine a precise tax rate at checkout depending on where you and your customer are located. The tool knows the tax rules in your country, state and even county and city and applies them properly to each order:
- Whether you’re located in a region with origin-based or destination-based tax schema.
- Whether shipping cost or discounts are taxable.
- Whether you should charge tax in another state or country not.
The tax rate is calculated with a zip code accuracy. If your customer provide zip+4, it will be calculated with even higher precision. In some states (and the number of such states is growing), the tax is calculated with a street address level precision.
