4. You can specify the tax rate in the Tax % Rate fields. Make sure you use the decimal equivalent to your tax rate. For instance, a 7% tax rate should be entered as .07.

Now that you’ve established tax rates for your store…
You’ll want to make sure you’re applying taxes to correct items. For example, we’re located in Minnesota where apparel is not taxed, but accessories are. When you begin Defining Departments for your inventory, you’ll want to make sure you identify which items are taxable and which are not by entering a T in the appropriate Taxable fields.
