    Hi Lori,

    Yes, this is possible. However, this option is only available to the following payment gateways:

    🔘 PayPal Standard

    🔘 PayPal Personal

    🔘 PayPal Commerce

    🔘 PayPal Business

    🔘 PayPal Express

    🔘 PayPal Pro

    🔘 PayPal Invoicing

    🔘 PayPal Checkout

    🔘 Square

    🔘 Stripe

    🔘 Authorize.Net

    🔘 2CheckOut

    🔘 Purchase Order

    Please also note that this feature is NOT available for subscription and donation-based payment types.

    Here's a detailed guide for your reference: How-to-add-tax-to-your-payment-form

    However, if you are not using any of those payment gateways, there's a workaround, and you would need to use widgets or field elements for your product list. The workflow is similar to this guide: How to Setup a Payment Order Form with Limited Stocks (jotform.com), then with the use of the Form Calculation widget, you can add and perform calculations for the Tax.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need further assistance.
