NOTE: If in a country a tax class is not different from the standard tax, when you define the tax class rate for this country, you enter the standard rate. For example, if in the UK, books have a lower than the standard rate, you define a tax class books, which is then applied when a book is delivered to the UK. If in Morocco books are not taxed with a lower tax rate, when you define the tax that applies for Morocco, in Books, you enter the same rate as the standard.
The following flowchart depicts the process:
NOTE: If the products are of Product types, for which you have defined that it contains non-shippable items, when the customer checks out, it is required to fill out the billing address only. Therefore, a customer who checks out software does not have a shipping address. If, however, the customer’s order contains both shippable and non-shippable products, the customer has a shipping address and is taxed with the tax for the shipping address, if it exists.
If a matching tax is found, then for each product in the cart, the system finds the tax class it belongs to. Then the tax that you have defined for this tax class is applied to the product. All products that do not belong to a particular tax class are taxed with the standard tax rate.
