Shopify Country and Shipping Zone API not returning correct tax percentages

Solved

Hi,

I am having issues getting the tax percentages for states. E.g. The New Jersey state tax is getting calculated at 6.625%, but Shopify API is returning 7%, so calculating the tax amount is not working outside of shopify.

I tried using Shopify API endpoints Country and Shipping Zone, both of these are returning same 7%.

Can anyone please help me out on this?

Hey @KamranTxtFi ,

Happy to help you out with this.

The country and shipping zone endpoints while returning tax rate fields are not intended to be a source of truth on taxes. We don't currently have a specific API endpoint for taxes that would allow you to not only get the correct rates, but also account for any overrides a merchant might create. We are thinking about a better API approach for taxes, but I don't have a timeline on when this might be available. 

I'll be sure to notify our tax teams about your issue for their tracking.

Regards,

John

Hi John,

Thank you for the updates. Looks like for now we cannot manage this, we will have to work on some other workaround.
