Multiple zip code ranges per county in tax rules?

Recommended Posts

So... I apologize if this is a widely known thing, but I have scoured the prestashop documentation as well as various Internet resources about this and have come up with bupkiss.  The issue is that I am trying to resolve is the problem of entering multiple zip codes per county.  I have each county's sales tax rate entered in the tax tab and when I go to enter tax rules into the state, I can only enter in one range per county.  Now, I realize I could just enter county 1, county 2, etc. to alleviate this, but to be honest, I have so many individual ranges that this would be counterintuitive.  Is there perhaps a method of entering in multiple zip codes per tax rule instead of just a single range?  Could I put semicolons or commas or something like maybe: "xxxxx-xxxxx; xxxxx; xxxxx-xxxxx"?

Whoa... Thanks.  I've been looking for a free solution, but this is cheap enough to let it slide.  I'll check it out and let you know.

You know what?  This looks like it's for shipping and not tax rules.  I'll message the developer just to double check though.

Hi. I hope this helps. I figured out a way to add multiple ranges for the taxes. 

 

For example I am located in florida. There is a 6% tax for the state and a 1.5% surtax in my specific county = 7.5%

 

So I made a new tax (1.5%) as seen here: post-383927-0-47141500-1499954172_thumb.jpg and named it the same as the 1st florida tax (6%) + surtax (1.5%) as seen here: post-383927-0-59981400-1499954173_thumb.jpg and here .

 

So there are 2 taxes now - Florida - (6%) and Florida + Surtax (1.5%)

 

*If you have multiple counties that you operate out of, then you will need to make a surtax for each one. (Don't have a way of getting around this, I only have one shop) Ex. Florida (6%), (county) surtax (1.5%), (county 2) surtax (0.5%), etc.

 

Next I went to tax rules and selected the florida tax (6%) and configured it as seen here: post-383927-0-59981400-1499954173_thumb.jpg. I then renamed it so I would know that the new florida sales tax also has a surtax added for specific zipcodes as seen here: post-383927-0-10447900-1499954171_thumb.jpg

 

The configuration is as follows (first set everything to combine then change the state tax back to "this tax only")

 

Florida - do not enter zipcodes - combine- 6%

Florida - zipcode range - combine - 1.5% (surtax)

Florida - new zipcode that is not in the range - combine - 1.5% (surtax)

Florida - different zipcode that might be a different range- combine - 1.5% (surtax)

 

Finally change the first Florida (the state tax that applies to the entire state) to "this tax only"

As follows:

 

Florida - do not enter zipcodes - this tax only - 6%

Florida - zipcode range - combine - 1.5% (surtax)

Florida - new zipcode that is not in the range - combine - 1.5% (surtax)

Florida - different zipcode that might be a different range- combine - 1.5% (surtax)

Done!
