Create Tax Type #
Use the add Create Tax Type button to open the Create Tax Type screen:
Give a descriptive name to the tax type (mandatory), for example, “State Tax,” “GST,” etc.
In the Applicable to product types section the system displays a list of all existing Product Types. Use the checkboxes in front of each of them to define whether this tax applies to this product type. You can select as many as you need, also none.
If no product types have been defined yet, just save the new tax type. On the next step, when you go to the Product Types tab, you can create your product types and map them to appropriate tax types from there.
