    Does system let you use paypal settings instead for collecting tax?

    Asked by rhenasey on February 10, 2015 at 09:38 PM

    I would like paypal settings to determine tax. Collecting tax from out of state residents when I don't need to so I am only using this for in state residents. How can I use my paypal settings?

    Hello rhenasey,

    Do you want to add tax in your payment form? Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement to adding tax and you can also define the tax amount based on the location of the user as well. Teh following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/296-How-to-Add-Tax-to-Your-Payment-Form 

    Please be noted that you can also use PayPal to calculate tax as well and the following guide should help you: https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=xpt/Marketing/shipping/EasyCalculateShipAndTax-outside%20 

    Please be noted that if you use PayPal to calculate tax, you should remove the tax calculation you have added in the payment question of your form.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
