Managing the tax is always complicated for any business and individual. It is complicated if you managing the e-commerce store and sell the products in United States because each states has a different tax rate. It is even more complicated if you want to manage the tax based on the city.


Native Magento systems only support to manage the tax based on the Country, State and Zip-code. It's not possible to manage the tax based on the City. To overcome this issue, DCKAP developed the module 'Tax by City' which is used to Manage the tax rate based on the city.


Once the customer orders a product, during check out, Tax by City calculates the tax based on the Shipping Address of the Customer. The calculated tax amount is automatically added to the invoice so that the customers are well informed about the tax component.

Managing the tax is always complicated for any business and individual. It is complicated if you managing the e-commerce store and sell the products in United States because each states has a different tax rate. It is even more complicated if you want to manage the tax based on the city.

 

Native Magento systems only support to manage the tax based on the Country, State and Zip-code. It's not possible to manage the tax based on the City. To overcome this issue, DCKAP developed the module 'Tax by City' which is used to Manage the tax rate based on the city.

 

Below are the list of Scenarios we considered while developing the Tax by City Module.

  • Same City Name may exists in different Zip code but Tax rate may vary.
  • Same Zip Code may exists for different City but Tax rate may vary.
  • Same City Name will comes under specific zip code ranges.

Once the customer orders a product, during check out, “Tax by City” calculates the tax based on the City, State, Country and Zip code provided in the Shipping Address of the Customer. The calculated tax amount is automatically added to the invoice so that the customers are well informed about the tax component.

Magento® Administrator can set City-based tax rules from “Manage Tax Zones” and “Rates Section” in the admin panel.

 

1. Enable the Tax By City Module

To Enable the Tax by City module, go to System > Configuration > DCKAP > Tax By City and Set 'Yes' to Enable option.

 

2. Configure the Tax Rate for the city with zip code

To Configure the Tax rate for the city as well as Zip code, Go to Sales > Tax > Manage Tax Zones and Rates and Click 'Add New Tax Rate; Button in the right corner.

 

3. We can specify the Country, State, zip and city to manage the tax rate. If you want to allow the city for the zip code range, you need to enable the option in System > Configuration > DCKAP > Tax By City

If the option is set to 'No', we can't get the option to enter the city name, when you select the Zip/Post is Range to 'Yes' while adding New Tax Rate option.

 

4. We can see the Tax Zones and Rates in the Grid view with the City Name.

 

The following scenarios are possible :-

Let us take the scenario in which 2 different cities, Baldwin Hills and Leimert Park. Both have the same zip code 90008, but different tax rates, 7% and 8% respectively. Even though the above cities have the same zip code, “Tax by City” extension has the provision to provide different tax rates as required in the above scenario.

 

In a slightly different version of the above scenario, we can create a tax rate with city name field empty with 7.5 % tax rate, which in turn will be applied to all the remaining cities under the zip code 90008.

 

Let us assume that a particular city, Leimert Park, has a range of zip codes, say 90000 to 90009. “Tax by City” extension allows you to define the city and the range.

 

As a continuation of the above scenario, some other city within that range, say Baldwin Hills, has a zip code of 90008 and a different tax rate, “Tax by City” provides the provision to enter the city name (Baldwin Hills), zip code (90008) and a different tax rate for the same.

Customer Reviews

Makes calculating CA sales tax much easier Review by Alan
I am very satisfied with the extension and the support that DCKAP has provided.

My company is based in California where we have probably the most complicated sales tax system in the country. There are many extensions that offer solutions that range from incredibly expensive and intrusive to ones that just don't work. Our website has a very complicated web of integrations including Magento, Fishbooks, Fishbowl, Endicia, and Quickbooks. I really wanted something that is simple AND JUST WORKS.
I checked out a ton of them and decided to go with the Tax by City extension by DCKAP. At first I thought it was a bit risky to go with a new comer but now I know we made the right choice.
Their local representative came to our facility to discuss what they can do for us. My web developer and I had many conversations via email with their chief programmer over the course of several weeks to determine that it was a good fit for our situation.
We went live with our new website in August 2015 and despite a few instances that required a little fine tuning it is running perfectly.
DCKAP also wrote a customization that made tax calculation fully integrate with our complex order tracking system. They have been immediately responsive to our issues and have solved all of them.
