To take advantage of the many tax rules that power a tax engine, the products and services sold through a merchant's Agile website or via the EDGE Customer Service and Manual Order portals may be mapped to a related product tax code. To do this, separate EDGE tax class types may be defined for each comparable tax code. At least one tax class type must be defined for each of the following to serve as the default:
- Catalog items – the default catalog tax class will be used for catalog items that are not associated with a specific tax class
- Shipping and handling
As instructed in Before You Begin, contact the individual tax calculation service providers directly for information about accessing and selecting the appropriate tax codes for products or service, as well as for shipping and handling. Tax classes are configured in the EDGE System Admin module.
