Several states allow merchants to charge a uniform tax for sales into that state. California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, and several other states do this. Instead of charging state, city, and county taxes, the state would require only a flat percentage (eg 7%) be charged.
Shopify reflects these uniform taxes in every state I have a nexus in, except for Texas. I should be able to charge my Texas customers an 8% uniform tax for any sales within the state. However, shopify is charging city, county, and state taxes separately.
Not only is this an accounting nightmare, I am also non-compliant in tax filing, because my non-shopify sales are charged at 8%, while my shopify rates are using the more granular rates.
The only way I could figure out to get around this is to create a collection containing all of my products, and set the tax for that collection for the state of Texas to 8%.
This is a pain. Shopify should change their tax tables to reflect the uniform tax rate Texas allows.
