I am trying to figure out a way to get calculated sales tax information for products in my cart through the Shopify APIs, but I cannot find anything in the API documentation or in the forums. Would anyone know if there are APIs available to do this?
Placing an order through the API. I want to place an order through the API and get the taxes ideally before I send the order to the API. If not, after sending the order, is it possible to get the taxes? I'm sending the shipping address too.
The way I read the documentation and example for this is that if I make an order, and I do not specify the taxes, they are calculated according to how the store setup taxes. So nothing to do, moving on. If I do want to set the taxes to specific values, I can include the rate and amount I want by providing them.
When I create and save an order on the API (setting an address and a line item) taxes are not added. I am setting it to taxable and the shipping address is in a taxable area. Any ideas there?
Also, I can't seem to get county taxes from the API just State taxes through Country > Province. For a place like New York City, that's a problem. Am I missing something here?
Alex, are you talking about Euro zone VAT or what countries.
Reason for asking is that I am producing an app for shopify to calculate (and report) eurozone vat.
Let me know if you want me to notify you when it's ready.
