    Is there no way to separate the GST and PST onto two separate lines?

    Just an update for everyone, as of yesterday (July 1st, Canada Day) our GST will be reduced to 6%. Google turned up this quick link: http://sbinfocanada.about.com/b/a/257235.htm

    go figure, I'd only find this out after I've already configured for 7% just yesterday, HA!

    Hello,

    Any idea how taxes are configured if the store / business is in Ontario, and it ships to both within Canada and the US? It appears to me that since the sale goes outside of Canada no GST/PST/HST is charged.


    thank you,

    Daniel

    I charge tax to everyone (but I am expecting to have all my sales within Canada).

    You can do what you are describing by "zones" Set up a US zone and a Canada zone. Then apply the tax only to the Canada Zone.

    Daniel, the general rule of thumb as far as I've seen to this point is that if the sale SHIPS to a region for which you ARE registered to collect taxes, you collect them. Otherwise, you do not.

    And, usually you only register to collect taxes in the states/provinces in which you have physical DOB addresses.

    Naturally, there are always exceptions which vary by industry, and a consultation with your tax professional (accountant) should clarify these issues for you.

    Re: Configuring Taxes for Canadian Sites/Zones

    I'm setting up a store for a client in Quebec where they have their PST applied on top of the GST.

    I used the same setup as noted for Ontario (which I have working super fine on my cart) but it's not charging ANY taxes for Quebec at all when I test it.

    I set up the Zones as noted in the instructions and set the Quebec PST to be priority 2 so that it would charge the 7.5% on top of the 6% GST.

    I have created 2 test products - one which should have both taxes charged and one that should be PST only.

    When I test using a shipping address in Ontario, it charges me 6% GST as it should. :) When I test using a shipping address in Ontario, it should be charging me (on a 10.00 GST/PST item and a 10.00 PST item):

    GST: $0.60
    PST: $1.55

    It comes up with NO TAXES at all.

    Is it because the postal shortform is different? IE. it could be QC or PQ? I also tried Quebec in my address...

    Thanks!

    Re: Configuring Taxes for Canadian Sites/Zones

    While following the very helpful directions written here (Thank you!) I have somehow converted all of my shopping cart buttons to a 'contact us' button link to the "contact us" page. Does anyone know if this is a coincidence? I have also been altering some of the html to customize my pages, maybe that is actually the source of the problem.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
