Hi,

The current tax system is only for US states. One is not able to change the tax rate for their country. Thanks

Thanks

I also have a small problem. I run such a small ‘business’ that currently we do not turn over enough - so we are not registered for tax and hence have to pay none. In the final release can you have an option to ‘turn off’ tax?

If the Tax rules are empty no tax will be calculated.

Thanks

1 - in Europe specially in France if you sell to final customers you need to display prices included taxes

2 - we have in europe some specials tax rules

- if you sold to a final customer he had to pay including VAT
those taxes are the sender rate taxes
- if your costumer is a professional with an Europeanen VAT number th are 2 solutions
- in th contry of the seller he had to pay the price with taxess
- in an other country he payed the price without taxes

we need a field with this Vat number to check if it’s empty or not

we need to know the origin country
we need to now the destination country

3 - for export to the rest of the world it’s taxe free

I hope this could be usefull to the developpers

Philippe

sorry for my bad french english

Yoav (or others), any idea when this will make it into a (beta) release? This is the major stumbling block for me in moving my current store to Magento. I’m happy to use the workaround posted elsewhere in the forum until it becomes incorporated, but would love to see the “real” version as soon as possible (also to help iron out any issues before the stable release--I’d love to be able to put Magento to work in my live store as soon as the production version is released smile ).
