I need to enter taxes for each city in the state of Oklahoma. I started to make a new tax for each city. I then went to try and make a tax code for each city and soon realized I could not. How do I get all the different city taxes assigned to a single tax rule? Is it possible?

Excuse do I get all the different city tax rates under one tax rule? Is it even possible?

Hello NinaLucas,

Thank you for the question. Unfortunately, when I attempt to find out more information on your account, I do not see any associated hosting accounts. I therefore can not determine the software you're using. When you are posting to a forum, it would help save time if you could please include the software you are referring to, a URL(if possible), and any steps to reproduce a problem. In this case you're simply asking for instructions on adding taxes - you also did this under the Billing section. I'm guessing that you're actually trying to do this in an ecommerce website? If you're using PrestaShop - please refer to the Taxes section of our PrestaShop education channel. If you're using OpenCart, check out the article on adding a new tax rate in OpenCart. If it's something else you're using, please specify and we will try to give you the information you require.

I am using Prestashop. I have read the articles and they are not helping. I need to enter over 600 different tax rates for the state of for each city. (Each rate is a combination of state, county and city taxes all added into one tax that I need to charge.) It seems that the tax rules go by country and not state or city. How can i get around this? I am hoping someone else in the States who has gone thru the process will see this and be able to share how they did it.

Hello NinaLucas,

This can definitely be setup in Prestashop, but you will have to add a new tax rule for each state, then you can modify a tax rate based on a zip code range.

Also, here is a helpful link to Prestashop's official page on Understanding Local Settings.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
