Set Up OSC for US Tax

Set Up OSC for US Tax
Well one of the "Dark Arts" is setting up tax rates. It is not that difficult you just need to know your tax laws and how OSC works.

These instructions cover setting Single State Tax (in this case Texas... applicable to CA state also.) If the state of the delivery address of a customer is from the state the tax is set for, tax will be applied.


Regarding "Countries" and "Zones" - Those are meant to check if the countries and states/provinces(zones) are present. For this purpose, there is no need to alter/add the "Countries" or "Zones". The U.S. is listed in the "Countries" table and all U.S. states are in the "Zones" table.

Begin here.

Tax Zone >> Insert
Under Zone Name type "Texas"
Under Description type "TX State Tax"
Click insert

You should see a folder called "Texas"--click it

Country dropdown select "U.S."
Zone dropdown select "All Zones"

You'll see "United States" "All Zones"
Click Edit
Zone dropdown select "Texas"
Click Update

You should now see -- "United States" "Texas"


Tax Classes >> New Tax Class
Under Tax Class Title type "Taxable Products"
Description - can be blank


Tax Rate >> New Tax Rate
Tax Class Title drop down -> Taxable Product
Zone dropdown -> Texas

Tax Rate - 8.25%
Description - Texas Sate Tax
Priority 0 or 1

Depending on our jurisdiction/district, make proper adjustments to your tax rates.

Set all your products to be taxable under catalog/categories product section.


For different tax rates within Texas, Click the ADD-ONS tab on top of the forum page and type "new york tax" or "florida tax" in the search field. Apply and alter the ADDON you selected to your specific requirement.
