The purpose of this overview document is to give you a highlight of the core features that are included in this release along with additional improvements and fixes that were also made.
HIGHLIGHTS OF NEW FEATURES
ABILITY TO SET UP, CONFIGURE AND APPLY TAX SYSTEM TO STORES
Users can now set up taxes from their Main account level configurations similar to how shipping zones are set up. Find the new TAXES menu item in the left navigation panel.
Users can create a tax zone name (internal memorable name only shown on the user’s dashboard), tax zone country (country or states within a country), and tax rate type for that selected country (or state) which can be Sales Tax or VAT, or users can provide a custom name that will be displayed on checkout.
Please Note: Tax zones can only be configured one time per a particular state or country.
Once tax zones are set up and configured, users can go into a specific store’s MAIN SETTINGS > TAXES and apply the taxes zones they wish to be available on the store.
The appropriate tax zone is then displayed on the customer’s checkout page if the tax class is enabled for the store and the visitor who checkouts out address matches one of the tax zones assigned to the store.
