TAXES - affects all Canadians and Europeans

I have searched and tested for a few hours and I *think* its almost working.

Assuming in the province of BC in Canada… and assume the following tax rules apply:
- BC residents, PST (7%) + GST (5%)
- Canadian residents, GST (5%)
- non Canadian residents, no tax

The “default tax origin calculation” is set correctly to BC, Canada
- I setup a rule for BC, Canada - PST (7%)
- I setup a rule for *, Canada - GST (5%)

BC only charges PST, not the PST and GST that is necessary.

Are the two tax rates not adding? If so, any idea what went wrong?

I’m Canadian, but I’m just starting to use Magento, so unfortunately I’m not much help to you at the moment because you’re further along than I am.

However, over the next few weeks hopefully we can help each other in various items.  And I trust a more knowledgeable Canadian will be along soon, eh.

Sounds good.

The only work around I can figure is to set your own province… BC, Canada title to “PST + GST” with a value of 12%.

That’s not the optimal setting… but… it is what it is.
