Settings for calculating sales tax for the shopping cart

This section allows you to set the sales tax settings:

General sales tax rate used for other countries: The rate you set here will
be used for sales tax calculation on items that are shipped outside your merchant
country.

Calculate and display shipping costs: Here you decide whether you want to
include shipping fees for your items. The options are:
Ignore shipping costs
Calculate shipping costs

Apply tax on shipping fee: Select 'yes' if tax on the shipping fee should be
calculated and added or 'no' otherwise. This setting affects all countries that
are not handled by the tax settings. To calculate tax on goods and tax on shipping
within the states of your merchant country, use the tax settings from the
navigation menu on the left panel.
