How to charge only state tax in Illinois?

How to charge only state tax in Illinois?

2 0 0

We've set up our taxes for select states, including Illinois for 6.25%. However, we're charging customers city and county tax too, in addition to state tax. Sometimes, the total tax amount ends up being charged over 8%. Is there a way to only charge state tax?

Hello @avani121 ,


You can try to set up the state tax only in your store setting:

  • Go to Online Store -> Setting -> Taxes
  • Go to Tax overrides -> Add tax 
  • Enter the state name and rate (in your case, Illinois and 6.25%) for the state tax.
  • Save

Hope this can help. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Yes, I have already done set tax override for Illinois but Shopify is
charging county and city taxes on top of State tax. See screenshot below:

Did you ever get a solution to this problem?  I am having the same issue with Illinois charging the extra taxes and need to get it fixed.
