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


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.
