Why is checkout tax showing as 0 in my SDK application?

Hi everyone,

 

We have an issue in our application where tax is 0 most of the time, in some cases when adding a 3rd or 4th product a small amount of tax is added, but when redirected to the Shopify website we can see the right tax amount added.  We can see the correct tax amount added in the order as well once its created in the Shopify orders page, but this is not always the case.

We are using the JavaScript client SDK. We are adding the Shipping address to the checkout as well.

My first thought was the new product categories, but I declined this thought since in the Shopify website(not in our web app) shows the correct tax.

 

Thank you in advance.

For clarification - store is set up to accept tax through settings -> tax + each product has "charges tax" enabled.

Also, we are using Shopify API to create orders. We are creating draft orders and then completing them. During checkout(using CHECKOUT API) we see tax in our third party application, but when we create the Draft order in Shopify and complete it, the order in Shopify shows no tax or $0 tax.
