Its difficult to say what could be causing the problem.
First, double check your tax class to be sure the products you are using to test with match the tax class set up for your local tax, I've seen this cause problems many times.
Also, have you installed any other mods that could possibly conflict with this one?
Also, if I enable debugging, where do should I expect to see the debug information?
GV bugfix, I installed only one mod (aka "add on") - CAPTCHA by Andrew Berezin. That add on worked and continues to work flawlessly.
I just have to make yours work (for me - I know it works for others).
No, you should not need to create a new tax class, you just need to be sure the tax class is assigned to your test product and to the local tax.
The debugging info will show up in the checkout area above the cart total summary, but it will only show if the local sales tax is actually being applied.
I'm not sure what else to suggest at this point. If you would like I could take a look at the admin settings. If that's what you would like to do you can PM me with log-in info.
LadyHLG, thank you very much for your help. I just PM-ed you the required info.
BTW, I also checked whether this has anything to do with the infamous DOS vs. UNIX end-of-line. My host is Linux based. All Zen Cart .php file have DOS end-of-line (CRLF), so this couldn't be the source of the problem.
Hello. I have be working with this mod and it is great, thanks so much for putting this out there. I am working on a table for NC, with Counties, City, Zip. So I will post that when I am done.
But I am having one issue. Here is an example of what my checkout window looks like:
Your TotalLocal Tax Rec ID: 1
Tax Name: 28678 Alexander County Tax 2.75% - 0.55
Per Item (Best Way): $4.95
NC State Tax 4.25%: $0.85
So at first glance I notice that the amount was right, but I didn't see the local tax amount, and then it was at the top, not listed under NC State Tax 4.25% like I thought it would be.
Do you know if there is anyway to fix this?
Thanks again for all your help!!
I am still at lost with my own problem, but if I understand your problem correctly, you just need to turn off "debug mode" where you install/uninstall or enable/disable this module.
Also, you may want to change the sort order from the default 250 to 301 or higher.
Lastly, I hope that you applied the GV bugfix, otherwise you will have calculation errors when customers use gift vouchers (aka gift certificates).
Thanks for the tip. That did take if off the top, but it is not showing up at all now, but the calculation is still correct, go figure!
I will have to go in and debug the GV, too.
Thanks for that as well!!
Make the sort order for the local sales tax mod lower than that for the tax. So if your tax sort order is 300 make the local sales tax 299.
Does the output show now in the totals?
When I goto Local Sales Taxes I get this messsage (like another poster):
1146 Table 'chargeshop.tax_rates_local' doesn't exist
[select count(*) as total FROM (tax_rates_local st LEFT JOIN tax_class tc ON st.local_tax_class_id = tc.tax_class_id) LEFT JOIN zones z ON st.zone_id = z.zone_id]
If you were entering information, press the BACK button in your browser and re-check the information you had entered to be sure you left no blank fields.
I have no other modules installed, just Zen Cart 1.3.8a.
Was the quote above for fixing this problem? If so, I still don't know what I should do. Would you please explain it a bit more? Thanks!
