When setting the prices for your products in PrestaShop 1.5, you have the ability the assign a Tax rule. Tax rules are predefined percentages to charge for taxes.

For example, PrestaShop 1.5 includes a tax rule of US-VA Rate (4%), which means this product is being sold in Virginia and should have a 4% tax added to the total.

 

An example of a Tax Rule being used

when-setting-a-tax-rule

In our testing, we added a product and set the Pre-tax retail price to $15.99. We then set the Tax rule to US-VA RATE (4%). 4% of $15.99 is 0.6396, so our total price after tax for this product should be 16.6296, or $16.63 when rounded up.

As you can see in the screenshot to the right, this is the exact amount that PrestaShop 1.5 calculated for the product after tax.

Setting a Tax Rule in PrestaShop 1.5

Hello Nachiket,

It is a bit confusing, but works like this:

You will need to have your excise tax and sales tax rules already created prior to setting up this new tax rule.

Create your new tax rule where you will be adding both rules.
Add a tax rate to the new tax rule for the excise tax, be sure to give it a name and make sure the "one after another" is selected.
Then add the sales tax rate to the tax rule like you did the first.

You will see all the rules in the list below. Select the excise tax from the first rule you created and the sales tax from the second rule you created.

Click on the "Enable Selection" button at the bottom to activate it.

Now, when a visitor purchases a product, it will first be taxed 12% for the excise and then 5% on that total for the sales tax.

If you do the same thing above, but select "Combine", then it will simply tax the original total at 17% (12% + 5%)

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
