Google checkout says TAX instead of VAT - why?

Hi,

We are only using Google Checkout for now. No VAT is applicable at the moment, but when the user comes to GC payment page, it says “TAX” instead of “VAT” - why is this?

Other (non-Magento) UK-stores say VAT.

Bug reported here:

Many thanks!

Thanks

Did you look in the en_GB CSV files?

Hi JT, many thanks for your reply.

I am not using any en_GB csv files, just the default ones.
Do you know which file this would be in? Looked in GoogleCheckout, can not find anything there.

Many thanks!

Personally I wouldn’t bother investing time in google checkout as they are going to be hiking their rates.

I am aware of that. Yes, it sucks.  However, I’d still like to offer GC as a payment option and fix the “tax” problem.

Thanks!
