    Pro Tip: If you are unsure what rates to charge here, please consult your tax professional and, when possible, use our automatic tax settings to make eCommerce easier.

    For Example, using automatic tax settings means customers in Massachusetts will automatically see a tax rate of 6.25%, while customers from New Hampshire will not see taxes applied to their cart. These tax calculations happen automatically; there is no additional setup required. Turn on taxes and tax rates, and everything is taken care of for you.

    Once you turn on tax calculations, customers will see taxes applied to their cart automatically at checkout, if applicable. The tax calculation uses the shipping address provided by the customer, so for you, it is worry-free. Wherever your customers are, they will be charged with the correct tax rate, and you will both be able to see these charges reflect on your respective statements.
