    help question Re: Local Sales Tax Mod - Support Thread

    LadyHLG, first let me thank you for this great mod which seems to be exactly what I need.

    I managed to install your package without any problem. My only problem now is how to enter my own state's information into your module.

    I selected Location/Taxes > Local Sales Tax, then click the [new tax rate] button.

    Now, I have a list of towns (not ZIP codes) in my state which have local sales tax. How do I enter that list?

    I only noticed the following instructions for ZIP codes:
    What data are we searching for?
    For Ranges use "-to-" for seperator
    example: 53000-to-56000.
    What do I use to separate the towns in the list? commas? spaces? How do I enter towns that have spaces in them (e.g. "East Springfield")?

    City names can be entered one per record or in a semi-colon delimited list, (with spaces as is).

    ie - Smallville; Gotham City; Metropolis

    Obviously, cities don't have ranges so you can disregard that.

    help question Re: Local Sales Tax Mod - Support Thread

    Thank you very much! This is clear now.

    Unfortunately however, it seems that I was too quick to declare that I installed without any problem. Now that I try to do a test checkout, I receive the following in step 2 of 3 (Payment Information):

    Your Total
    1146 Table 'zc_store.TABLE_LOCAL_SALES_TAXES' doesn't exist
    in:
    [select local_tax_id, zone_id, local_fieldmatch, local_datamatch, local_tax_rate, local_tax_label, local_tax_shipping, local_tax_class_id from TABLE_LOCAL_SALES_TAXES where zone_id = '']
    Have you seen this before? What could be causing this?

    Just in case the following could be helpful in diagnosing the above problem: I suspected the the table that was supposed to be created by running LocalSalesTaxv2.2.sql wasn't really created.

    I decided to re-run it (via the edit box (copy & paste) because the 'upload file' doesn't really work) and I received the following which looked familiar from the first run (which I mistook for a non-failure):
    Query Results:
    CREATE TABLE tax_rates_local ( local_tax_id int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment COMMENT 'tax id', zone_id int(11) default NULL COMMENT 'zen cart zone to apply tax', local_fieldmatch varchar(100) default NULL COMMENT 'name of field from delivery table to match', local_datamatch text COMMENT 'Data to match delievery field', local_tax_rate decimal(7,4) default '0.0000' COMMENT 'local tax rate', local_tax_label varchar(100) default NULL COMMENT 'Label for checkout', local_tax_shipping varchar(5) default 'false' COMMENT 'Apply this tax to shipping', local_tax_class_id int(1) default NULL COMMENT 'Apply to products in what tax class', PRIMARY KEY (local_tax_id) );
    Any idea what I could be doing wrong?

    Update: wait a minute... I didn't see the top pink bar containing the error message. It says:

    Failed: 1
    Error ERROR: Cannot create table tax_rates_local because it already exists
    Warning Note: 1 statements ignored. See "upgrade_exceptions" table for additional details.

    Check your database to be sure the table is there and it is named correctly with whatever table prefix you have chosen (if any).

    Idea or Suggestion Re: Local Sales Tax Mod - Support Thread

    Update: baffled by the mismatch by the table names (TABLE_LOCAL_SALES_TAXES vs. tax_rates_local) I tried to see where that TABLE_LOCAL_SALES_TAXES could possibly come from. I found two places in which TABLE_LOCAL_SALES_TAXES should be substitued by 'tax_rates_local'

    PHP Code:
    define('TABLE_LOCAL_SALES_TAXES'DB_PREFIX 'tax_rates_local'); 
    That led me to find what my problem was: I forgot to upload one file: [FONT="Courier New"]/includes/extra_datafiles/ot_local_sales_taxes_databse_tables.php[/FONT]


    See what I mean by "applying patches manually is error prone"?

    I wish there were a way to unpack the entire package into the directory structure in one step. Something like 'tar -xvf LocalSalesTaxModv2.2.tar'.

    Thanks again for your great mod. Now I am going to check the correctness for the calculations.

    help question Re: Local Sales Tax Mod - Support Thread

    Unfortunately, this mod seems to be not working for me. I repeated all steps properly this time - from the beginning (on a test store of course) - but I keep getting calculations as if no local sales tax is defined.

    I mean, everything works just as before: State tax is applied but the local sales tax is simply not there:

    Code:
    Your Total
          Sub-Total: $1.98
      Free Shipping: $0.00
    State Sales Tax: $0.12
              Total: $2.10
    Shouldn't there be another line for local sales tax?

    What could have I done wrong in installing/configuring this mod?

    Have you tried changing the sort order of the mod?

    On the Gift Cert Mod, your link to the calculation error in gift cert totals worked. All the totals are correct!

    I really appreciate your help. This is a great mod and will put our store in compliance with the new destination based sales tax in WA.

    I really appreciate your help on this!!

    No, I kept the default 250. I will try this shortly and see whether this helps. What value do you recommend?

    Also, should I define a new tax class for it, or should I just use the existing tax class for the state?

    Also, if I enable debugging, where do should I expect to see the debug information?

    Thanks,
    Daniel
