Tax rate is rounded up in ecart

Tax rate is rounded up in ecart

Hi,

We have a tax rate of 0.0975 for CA residents and it appears that the tax is rounded up. Is this because the force decimals is checked for currency?

An example on an order of $305, the tax should be 29.74, but it is $30.

thx
Eric

I don't think so. I would have to look at the code, but it should actually have the exact rate without rounding by default, so I'm not sure exactly what is happening.

Hi Ray,

What page do you need in order to see the code?

thx

I would want to see the code where the amount is displayed, and I would want to see the function definition in the ecart include file where the rate is defined.

Odd... are any of your other charges rounded as well?


<%
function WAEC_eCart1_SalesTax()
totalTax = 0
if (true AND ((WA_eCart_GetTaxableTotal(eCart1) > 0) AND (cStr(Session("eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_state_province")) = "CA"))) then
totalTax = totalTax + (WA_eCart_GetTaxableTotal(eCart1) * cDbl(0.0975))'Result
end if
WAEC_eCart1_SalesTax = WA_eCart_FormatNumber(totalTax, eCart1.ForceDecimalsC, eCart1.DecimalPlacesC)
end function
%>

was the code I was looking for from this file, as well as:

thisCart.ForceDecimalsW = false
thisCart.DecimalPlacesW = 2

This all looks correct to me though. What about where it is displayed? Maybe it is rounded incorrectly there? Is it accounted for in the grandtotal as the rounded value or is it correct in the grand total?

Ray,

This is the code that displays on the confirm page and it displays the tax (incorrect):

<div class="eC_OrderSummary">
<table border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="eC_CartSummary">
<%
'WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
'ecart="eCart1"
if (WA_eCart_GetDiscounts(eCart1) > 0 OR WA_eCart_GetCharges(eCart1) > 0 OR WA_eCart_GetShipping(eCart1) > 0 OR WA_eCart_GetTax(eCart1) > 0) then
%>
<tr>
<td class="eC_Subtotal eC_SummaryLabel">Sub-total</td>
<td class="eC_Subtotal"><%=WA_eCart_DisplayMoney(eCart1, WA_eCart_TotalColumn(eCart1, "TotalPrice"))%></td>
</tr>
<%
'WA eCart Merchandizing Show End
'ecart="eCart1"
end if
%>
<%
'WA eCart Merchandizing Show Start
'ecart="eCart1"
if (WA_eCart_GetDiscounts(eCart1) > 0) then
%>
<tr>
<td class="eC_SummaryLabel">Discounts</td>
<td>-<%=WA_eCart_DisplayMoney(eCart1, WA_eCart_GetDiscounts(eCart1))%></td>

<%

'ecart="eCart1"
end if
%>

end if
%>
<%

<%

What about if you add:

<?php echo(WAEC_eCart1_SalesTax()); ?>

does that already have the amount rounded?

Do I add that into the code block or do I replace the Get Tax code?

Just add it anywhere on the page... I still don't see where it could be rounded so I'm trying to pinpoint it.
