How to adjust tax rate for different geographic locationsAsked by ScootcHLaakE on September 09, 2014 at 03:17 PM
Not sure why this is not working for me. I need to enter different tax rates for CANADIAN PROVINCES. The tax rate for US States would be zero.
It would seem the user can enter any text in the dropdown field Address : State/Province
How can be be sure to caputure the correct tax for each province?
"Note that only the following fields are available for selection:
Address : State
Address : Country"
This is urgent, thanks.

After more inspection, this isn't working since this screen doesn't work in FireFox at the moment. Please use Chrome until it's fixed.
Please note that we only allow the selection of one drop down for the different tax locations, so you'll have to decide whether to work at the State/Province level, or country level, or have a custom mixed drop down. Thanks.
After looking into this a bit further, I discovered that this bug is specific to FireFox. It works as expected in Chrome. Here's what you can do:
- Using Chrome, create a drop down that has all the locations you'd like to set different tax rates for. We only allow one drop down for this.
- when setting up a custom tax rates, select it from the drop down, and then enter the tax rate surcharges for each location:
Contrary to what I mentioned before, this doesn't have to use the Address field. I'll corrected my previous answer on that. Please let us know if you're able to get this set up, and this ticket will be updated once it works across all browsers.
This is now fixed. You may now select a State/Province subfield as the basis for tax surcharges.
confirmed this is working now. Thanks!
@Neil, feel free to resolve this when you're done with all your changes.
Thank you for helping to try and sort this out. I am still confused
regarding certain aspects of this tax enabled feature.
Are you saying this tax-enabled feature only works if the person using the
form is using Chrome? And the form will not work correctly if the user
happens to use FireFox (or IE for that matter) ?
This was a bug that should now be fixed. At one point it only affected FireFox, and it would only affected user building the form, not those filling it out.
Currently everything should be working as expected regardless of the browser you choose. Please let us know if you continue to encounter issues with this.
Ok, Thank you for clarifying that - much appreciated. The tax is now working - it is a very helpful additional feature.
I am using Chrome and cannot get this feature to work. The sales tax feature works but I need to create separate tax rates for in state and out of state purchases.

Has no effect in my final price calculation.
