Question about Tax setup
Author Randy on 11-12-2000 at 13:26 (EST)
Ok ... I think I understand the way the tax rates, etc... work. I was editing the Tax Table (States):ON=8.0%,Ontario=8.0%,AB=7.0%,Alberta=7.0%,...etc..and then I did the same thing for countrys. If I selected Ontario, the tax rate went to 8%, If Alberta was selected from the drop down menu, they were charged 7%.

Now my question is. In Canada we have a GST which is 7% for all provinces across the board. Now in Ontario (only in Ontario because this is where the company is), you have to pay an additional 8% PST on top of that (for a total of 15%) UNLESS, you have a PST Exemption form. If a customer in Ontario has a PST Exemption form, they only get charged the 7% GST.

Now did I do this right?
I put in the Tax Menu Rates:7.0%,15.0%
So if this works right, all provinces will be charged the 7% GST, and where the drop down menu for the 7.0%, and 15.0% is I have this, "Ontario businesses who are NOT PST exempt, please click on the tax rate and select 15%"

(The company will need a copy of their exemption forms to be sure, and I also added that if you do have a PST Exemption form, click on the box and type in the form #...not to sure if any companies would want to type in their # though)

Anyhow, I guess this would have to work more or less on the honour system? and the company here would have to verify that if a Ontario business left it at 7%, it would have to be varified against their copy of the exemption form.

Did I confuse you yet?? lol

I working test can be seen here

It will just bring you to a "Start the Order Procees" page, but will let you run through and see it.

Just wanna make sure I don't screw around with anyone's taxes (hehehehe)

Yep, that should work as you described. And from looking at your site, I like the way you implemented the "P.S.T. Rate" section on your order form..... that should make it clear enough for Ontario customers.
