3. Tips:

Added to % federal tax


Counrty Tax = 6%,
Tax Rate = 5 %, it will be 5 % + 6 % = 11 %
Calculation as below :

Product price = $ 10.00
$10.00 * (6 % + 5 %) = $ 1.10
Total : $ 10 + $1.10 = $ 11.10


Instead of % federal tax - Charge the rate you set for the region instead of the country tax

Country Tax = 6 %,
Tax Rate = 5 %, it will charge 5 % instead of 6 % for the particular region

Calculation as below:

Product price = $ 10.00
$10.00 * 5 % = $ 0.50
Total : $ 10 + $ 0.50 = $ 10.50


Compounded on top of % federal tax - Add % on top of the country tax


Country Tax = 6 %,
Tax Rate = 5 %, it would charge 5% on top of the 6% tax amount.
Calculation as below:

Product price = $ 10.00
$10.00 * 6 % = $ 0.60
Add 5 % on top of 6 % : $ 0.60 * 5% = $ 0.03
Total : $ 10 + $ 0.60 + $ 0.03 = $ 10.63
