How do I charge tax based on customer’s billing address state only?
Let me add a disclaimer: if you are required to charge Maryland tax, you should charge it for customers with MD billing addresses OR MD shipping addresses. Either of those give MD authority to tax.
All the information is found under Sales-->Tax. You will need to edit “Manage Tax Rules"and edit “Manage Tax Zones and Rates.”
