I just found that if i edit WA_Globals.php
and i make the state variable nothing:
// Tax Setting
$WAGLOBAL_TaxRate = 0.825;
$WAGLOBAL_TaxState = "";
the sub-total and sales tax area shows on the cart.php order summary.
if i place a state it blanks the table rows!
eCART tax setup is shown on image 3
if i comment out the if else statements controlling the display of the table rows everything shows: image 4
i have so far replaced folders with fresh ones:
