How to configure taxes in prestashop 1.7, how to use multiple zip code ranges,

Recommended Posts

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-383927-0-03712600-1499955907_thumb.jpg post-383927-0-47141500-1499954172_thumb. and named it the same as the 1st florida tax (6%) + surtax (1.5%) as seen here: post-383927-0-92650100-1499955907_thumb.jpg post-383927-0-59981400-1499954173_thumb.


 


So there are 2 taxes now - Florida - (6%) and Florida + Surtax (1.5%) post-383927-0-92650100-1499955907_thumb.jpg


 


*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-383927-0-04649800-1499955909_thumb.jpg post-383927-0-59981400-1499954173_thumb. . 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-383927-0-26122100-1499955905_thumb.jpg post-383927-0-10447900-1499954171_thumb.


 


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!


 


Now if someone is in the state of Florida but not in the county they will only be charged the state tax (6%) and if someone is in the specified county/zipcodes they will be charged the state tax and surtax (7.5%).
