In this tutorial, I will show you how I set up taxes in PrestaShop version 220.127.116.11. You will see how to work with state and county level taxes in the USA as well as how to deal with a bug that exists in this release of PrestaShop. It is my understanding that PrestaShop has already corrected this bug and we will see the fix in the next version when it is released.
There are a couple things you should be aware of before watching this video. First, this video will be dated at some point since Prestashop says they have fixed that bug I mentioned above.
Second, in the first video, you will notice I talk about the Bug Tracker. Well, the Bug Tracker has gone through some significant changes and doesn’t look the same anymore. Don’t let that stop you, though. To get to the thread I mention in the video, go here.
Third, I use an incorrect term when I’m describing how to fix the bug. I speak of the “single quote” many times. I really meant to say “apostrophe” anywhere I said “single” quote. On my keyboard the apostrophe is the character directly below the quotation mark character (on the same key). Sorry if that is confusing.
Since the video will be outdated, hopefully soon, I decided not to re-record it. I’ll replace it after the next version of PrestaShop comes out and I verify that the bug has been fixed.
After you watch the videos, please let me know if this does or does not work for you. There are a lot of steps and it would be easy to make a mistake. Also, I believe that these tutorials should help anyone trying to figure out how to set up taxes, whether your are from the USA or not. For those of you with a VAT, or other taxation system, please let me know if this was helpful.
If someone wanted to teach me a bit about these other taxing systems, I would be happy to put a video together showing how to set up PrestaShop for your system.
OK, on to the videos…
