Shopify US Tax Table Limited to Zip Code vs. Zip+4

I have several customers that are in the same US Zip Code.  That Zip Code has 2-3 different cities that fall within the 5 Digit Zip Code, however, each city is being charged the same Tax.  In reality, each city within the Zip Code ha...

EU VAT for second-hand goods

Hi, I'm selling second-hand goods in the EU (mostly France). As such I must apply a splecial scheme for taxing the profit margin only, where the VAT is computed on the difference between the selling price (for the customer) and my purchase price. For instance, if I purchase a product for 20€ and sell it for 50€, the profit margin is 30€, so with a 20% VAT rate, the VAT amount would be 5€ ...

Tax settings for the Netherlands

  Hi all, I am experiencing problems setting up the TAX system in Shopify. Netherlands requires a 21% TAX rate and include TAX in your product prices. I currently have "All taxes are included in my prices" checked, but of course when I enter a 21% TAX rate the numbers don't make sense. Is there a way to change the formula Shopify uses tax = ( tax rate * price ) / ( 1 + tax rate ) to...

Intimidated by Taxes

So, taxes worry me. Basically, I don't want to have any problems with the IRS. I know my sales tax nexus is in California. I usually market to just Californians, but if I want to expand nationwide  do I need to set up 50 different tax codes for my Sopify store?
