Set up Tax Zones

From Phoenix User Guide
Setup Shop

From admin go to Adminnavbartax.png Localization/Taxes → Tax Zones - you will see this:


Tax Zones are sometimes known as Geo Zones and are defined here so you can set up different tax rates, payment options and shipping options for each Tax Zone.

To explain using the default CE Phoenix install as an example - the default shop is located in Florida so only charges tax in Florida.

  • A Tax Zone has been created and named Florida (it could be named anything)
  • Open the Tax Zone (click the Folder icon) to see the areas included in this Tax Zone.
  • You will see Country = United States and Zone = Florida.


To explain using a shop located in a different country as an example where the shop only charges tax in its own country.

  • Create a Tax Zone
  • Click Insert
  • Enter a Name (anything you want).
  • Enter a Description (anything you want).
  • Click Save
  • Click the folder icon to open the new Tax Zone folder.
  • Click Insert
  • Select your country from the Country: drop down menu.
  • Select All Zones from the Zones: drop down menu.
  • Click Save
  • This has now created a new Tax Zone where tax will be charged to all Zones (counties/provinces) within your country.
