This article will demonstrate how to create a new tax for your PrestaShop 1.5 store list. Although PrestaShop provides a list of taxes already enabled, you may want to add additional taxes for other locations that you do business with. This list of taxes can appear in multiple places in the program, so managing them here will affect the dropdown lists on all of those screens. Follow the steps below and you will learn how to add a new tax in your PrestaShop 1.5 store.
