sales tax calculation

my client has advised me that they want to include shipping in the sales tax calculation.

at present, the calculation in the ecart object tax tab is simply ...

Calculation:

Based on the carts taxable total * a percentage value

I seem to remember something in the checkout wizard about including shipping in the calculation.

What is the easiest method to change this ?

thanks

well, you cant use the cart taxable total in the shipping rules and include the shipping in the sales tax both, it is one or the other.

If you try to do both it will create an endless loop where it will have to recalculate the tax because shipping was added, then recalculate shipping because tax was added and so on and so on.

you would need to edit the shipping rules to use the cart subtotal instead of taxable total.

then go to the tax tab and check the option to include shipping in sales tax.

FYI Fixed this, no problem.

The shipping calculation was straightforward anyway, as it was using a recordset value dependent on cart weight.

The problem was that I couldn't find the checkbox option to 'include shipping in cart subtotal when calculating sales tax', as i was looking for it in the tax tab, whereas it is on the shipping tab
