Tax Rates

Add or Edit Tax Rates

To add a new Tax Rate, click the Add New button in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Add Tax Rate details and click Save


To be able to view or edit Tax Rates, you’ll need to have appropriate User Access to the Settings module.

To edit an existing Tax Rate, click on the entry you wish to change, make the changes and click Save. (See Tax Rates field explanations below for information about how to populate each field). An existing Tax Rate can also be disabled by setting the Disabled? button to Yes.
