"sales tax"
Posted by Norma Scott on Sep-18-00 at 10:01 PM (EST)
I just finished revising every page on my website (about 400) with the new version of UShop. Everything's working well except I can't get it to charge sales tax to New York State customers. My applets all have the taxable set to YES. I have configured the shopping cart for 8% for NY, New York, N.Y, trying to use all possible abbreviations. But no sales tax is charged.
Website is www.thesteelsource.com . Thank you.

Since you want to charge 8% to all New York orders, try setting the tax configuration fields in the uShop 3.0 Control Panel to:

Default Tax Rate: 0.0%
Tax Table (States): New York=8.0%,NY=8.0%,N.Y.=8.0%
Tax Table (Countries):
Tax Menu Rates:
Tax Menu Table:
Tax Shipping Charge: No
Base Tax On: Shipping Address

The above settings do not use the "TAX MENU" at all, so you can actually remove the "USHOP TAX MENU" tag from your "order_template.html" page.

Or as another option, if you want to leave the "TAX MENU" on your "order_template.html" page, you can try using these settings:

Default Tax Rate: 0.0%
Tax Table (States):
Tax Table (Countries):
Tax Menu Rates: 0.0%,8.0%
Tax Menu Table: New York,NY,N.Y.
Tax Shipping Charge: No
Base Tax On: Shipping Address

Thank you. I think I didn't have it configured right. I didn't know it should be: New York=8.0%,NY=8.0%,N.Y.=8.0% , I just had the state abbreviations in the field. So of course no tax was charged. Hopefully now it should work okay. Thanks again.
