Sales Tax by Zip Code

How can I set a rule to charge sales tax by zip code? I have stored the tax rate in a table by zip code. There are over 1000 zip codes so I will need to access the database for the amount. Can you point in the right direction on how to do this with a tax rule. Thanks

You could create a charge like this by modifying the basic coupon code discount that is covered in the Creating a Coupon System Solution Recipe:

This can be found in the eCart support page under Solution Recipes:

You would just need to modify it so that you filter a recordset based on the zip the user enters, then store that rate into a session variable. From that point it is the same as the coupon except that you are creating a tax or charge rule instead of a discount.
