How to replace existing tax rates

  • Tax-inclusive stores: retail prices won't be affected. Only the tax amount will change.
  • Tax-exclusive stores: retail prices will change according to the rate change, as the tax amount is added on top of the retail price.

  1. Click Setup.

    Overview of the Sales Taxes page.
