US sales tax rate calculation based on the type of product

Solved

We are planning to move our online store from WooCommerce to Shopify.

 

In WooCommerce, we can assign a tax class (food and beverage, household, apparel, etc.) so our TaxJar, sales tax app can calculate the correct tax rate for each product in a cart at the checkout. 

 

Can you also assign a tax class for each product in Shopify so our TaxJar app can calculate the correct tax rate for each product in a cart at the checkout?

 

Thank you in advance.

Matt

Please do share your findings, @CanisLupus. It might help any other merchant who have the same questions regarding TaxJar with their store.

 

I hope it can do what you need!

Hi @CanisLupus,

 

This is a really great question!  There's no way to set categories or tax classes on products in Shopify and the closest thing we would have would be the "Tax Code" field on the products page, which is only available for merchants on the Plus plan using Avalara

 

TaxJar do however have an app which integrates with Shopify! It could be worth reaching out to TaxJar about how the app is already working and what data it pulls from Shopify in order to do your calculations. 

 

I'll also link the help guide Shopify has for setting up US taxes here too!
