Shipping line tax calculation

Shopify Partner
20 1 1


We have an issue figuring out the shipping lines' tax amounts. We have a few customers with orders that have the following shipping line details:

  • Shipping price $15
  • Tax line {rate = 0.1, price = $0}

Why is the `taxline[0].price`  set to $0? Shouldn't the tax line be `{rate =0.1, price=$1.5}` instead?

Hey @Tahar ,

This would be more easily addressed by having one of your affected clients contact support directly, so that an agent can review their tax settings and look for any discrepancies. We're not able to authenticate and login to shops from the forums, and given that this sounds like a few individual cases rather than a general issue, it would be fastest to go down that route to help alleviate some of the guesswork.
