    In some states like Texas, we are required to collect sales tax on shipping. Can you add an option to the Payment Options so that a shipping fee can be included in the subtotal and get taxed?

    You misunderstand. I already have a shipping charge set as a $15 flat fee, but that $15 does not get taxed.

    I need a way to add tax to the shipping charge itself, but only if the shipping address is in Texas.

    As a workaround, I could setup an item as shipping so it shows up in the subtotal and does get taxed, but it would charge everyone tax on shipping.

    I see what you mean, unfortunately, it is no possible to set a tax to the shipping fee. The tax rate is applied only to the products.
