The tax settings that you can adjust in the admin area are for US based customers only. There is no support within PowerStore for foreign taxes. If you would like to add in your own custom tax rules you can do so with eCart but it is not a supported feature of the store. If you would like to go this route you will need to check the files that are in this thread:

Tax adjustment in Power Store 2

Okay, that did not apply as it is for Power Store 3. Please advise as to where I should start to look to adjust for this tax even if it has been customized in Power Store 2 as my orders are coming in with wrong tax. Thank you

You need to adjust the tax rules with eCart. What have you tried and what is the result that you are getting?

Tax in Power Store 2

Here is the //eCart Rule
function WAEC_WA_Store_Cart_SalesTax() {
$totalTax = 0;
if (true && (($this->GetTaxableTotal() > 0) && ((isset($_SESSION['eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_state_province'])?$_SESSION['eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_state_province']:"") == $GLOBALS['WAGLOBAL_TaxState']) || ((isset($GLOBALS['WAGLOBAL_TaxState'])?$GLOBALS['WAGLOBAL_TaxState']:"") == ""))) {
$totalTax += ($this->GetTaxableTotal() * $GLOBALS['WAGLOBAL_TaxRate']/100);//Result
}
return WA_eCart_FormatNumber($totalTax, $this->ForceDecimalsC, $this->DecimalPlacesC);
}
//eCart Rule
I have a data base which has states_provinces and a column "StateTax" where I have my new tax at .012 but it is not refelecting on current orders. Thank you.

This looks like the default PowerStore state tax rule. It works by looking at the state or province that the user has entered and compares this to the value you have in your global settings. If the user selects this state or province it should apply the tax to the order based on the rate that you have entered in the global settings. There is no updating that is required to make use of this tax rule. Only if you are adding in a custom rule or modifying an existing rule would you need to use eCart to make the changes.
