General Information
It turns out this program has only been sold in Europe, not US. The Total Based Shipping is fine, but taxes are another story. I need to get Sales Tax for CA to work.
Problem: I get shipping or Tax, not both.
You have to input every amount with it's tax in the tax rate box. There must be a formula for this.
Any help from a US based user would be great.

Hello Rose,

Here's what I'm seeing as an answer in the OpenCart forums -there was also a separate US-based customer who confirmed it, so I'm going to provide the information given:

1. Create a Geo Zone for -

Name: CA State Tax
Desc: CA State Tax
Tax Rate: 8.5000
Priority: 1

2. Create a Tax Class for the new Geo Zone:

Tax Class Title: CA Tax
Description: CA Tax
Geo Zone: CA State Tax (from above)
Description: CA Tax 8.5%
Tax Rate: 8.500
Priority: 1

3. Edit your products and ensure that the tax class is set on all products
4. Set "Display Prices With Tax" to "NO" in the settings page
5. When checking out, only people from California will be charged tax.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
