Tax rule not working...

I have an active tax rule in the cart object to charge MD sales tax if the shipping address is in MD. This rule is not firing off at all.

I had additional rules for government exempt cards. We had a customer from MD purchase an item, but no tax was charged. We verified that the card was not govt issued, and I began stripping out the rules to get to simple MD tax.

Old rule:

function WAEC_shoeCart_MDTax()
totalTax = 0
if (true AND ((cStr(Session("eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_state_province")) = "MD") AND (cStr(Session("left_4")) <> "XXXX") AND (cStr(Session("left_4")) <> "XXXX") AND (cStr(Session("left_4")) <> "XXXX") AND (cStr(Session("left_4")) <> "XXXX") AND (cStr(Session("left_4")) <> "XXXX"))) then
totalTax = totalTax + (WA_eCart_TotalColumn(shoeCart, "TotalPrice") * cDbl(.06))'Result
end if
WAEC_shoeCart_MDTax = WA_eCart_FormatNumber(totalTax, shoeCart.ForceDecimalsC, shoeCart.DecimalPlacesC)
end function

New Rule (still not working):

function WAEC_shoeCart_MDTax()
totalTax = 0
if (true AND ((cStr(Session("eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_state_province")) = "MD"))) then
totalTax = totalTax + (WA_eCart_TotalColumn(shoeCart, "TotalPrice") * cDbl(.06))'Result
end if
WAEC_shoeCart_MDTax = WA_eCart_FormatNumber(totalTax, shoeCart.ForceDecimalsC, shoeCart.DecimalPlacesC)
end function


It is still not working.

The click chain in my cart is checkout (enter payment info) > confirm (submit to Authorize.Net) > success.

Let me know if you need any more info from me...

if the tax isn't being applied with the second rule, then the session is not being set properly.

Add the following to the confirm page after the body tag:
Shipping State: <%= Session("eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_state_province") %>

so you can see what it is being set to.


Also, provide a link where we can see the problem to investigate further.

Unfortunately, I can't give you a link to try this out, due to users having to be military to buy items from our site.

You can see the variable at the top of the confirm page (Order ConfirmationMD), with the MD being the session variable.

It is also carried over to the Success page, where I have the session variable written in the Shipping information section of the page.
