    Step 1. I use WINRAR to open it and extract it to my HD.
    Step 2. I use CONtext to Edit it.
    Step 3. And to upload it to my server, I use FileZilla.
    All Free stuff on the WWW.

    Does this wonderful program work with the latest version of Zen Cart V1.3.8?

    According to the BOE, California sales tax is charged based on the location where the goods change hands. If you ship them, tax is calculated on your location, not the customer's. Charge the customer location tax only if you make the delivery in person.

    **If you ship outside of your district, that you are suppose to charge the State wide sales tax rate of 8.25%** If I ship in my district (San Diego, then I charge 8.75%.

    Straight from the my BOE correspondence....
    In summary, based on the above citations and the information provided, if your business is located in San Diego County, you are considered engaged in business in San Diego County. Therefore, when you make a sale to a customer and you ship or deliver the property to the customer anywhere in San Diego County, you are responsible for reporting the 8.75% tax rate. However, if you ship or deliver the property to the customer in another district in which you are not considered engaged in business as defined above, you are required to report the transactions (sales) taxes of 8.25%, but you are not required to report the district use taxes of .50%. As such, it is false to say that if your business is located in San Diego, the 8.75% San Diego tax rate applies to all your sales shipped or delivered throughout California. The tax rate that applies is based on where the product is delivered to the customer.

    So if you do it this way, you don't need the mod rigth. I created a zone for CA and apply it to 8.20%. Does that sound right?

    Just one thing, you mention "any tax that you don't collect is the responsibility of the buyer ... ", I think that's wrong, it's the other way around. You (the seller) are resposible for paying sales tax to the BOE, you are allowed, but not required, to pass this cost on to the customer, but you are the one ultimately responsible for making sales tax payments.

    I just charge 8.25% for all of California. The BOE does allow this and doesn't mind, it just says if you over-collected just send it all to them. I think most companies do it this way, it's just too much of a hassle figuring it out for all counties/districts unless you only deal withing your local zone.

    Hmmm...I hear a lot of different things about CA sale collection. But you sound convincing so when you say "BOE correspondence"
    is it from a BOE publication. If yes can you give me a number. I just want to be sure.

    Also for those who use zip code for CA sale tax rate, on Application 17 it stated that it maybe incorrect to use address (zip code) to determine a sale tax.
