[resolved] The Shipping Tax should only apply for the Billing Addre (10 posts)

    Found a bug in Woocommerce latest version.

    The Shipping Tax should only apply for the Billing Address and it doesn't have to change even if the user inputs a different Shipping Address.

    I see that now when a user buys a product and he fills the Billing Address, when he fills the Shipping Address if this is different for the billing address, the TAX also changes depending the Shipping country or zip code.

    This shouldn't happen, it only needs to change the Shipping Costs and not the TAX, as the TAX it is always for the BILLING ADDRESS needed for the INVOICE BILL and has to be the same as the one inserted in the BILLING ADDRESS

    I think it either depends on where you are OR it is taxed to shipping. I believe they called this the "USE TAX" of which where the item will be used. But again check your state requirements.

    Here are some sources.

    The problem is that here in Europe, for example if a company from my country buys a product that needs to be shipped to another country, than the INVOICE BILL it is sent to the buyer ( the billing address ) independent where it is shipped. :(

    I understand, that is why I said it is different for different parts of the world so it isn't a bug per se but just need to have the option to tax against billing or shipping...I am not sure if Woocommerce already has this function or not but perhaps someone who knows will shed some light on this.

    Yes, I hope this too as for all us on Europe is a must have option.

    I'm in europe (UK) and its based on the shipping address. I'd need to know where you are and something online stating billing is used to add this.

    Also, if your actually talking about origin vs destination shipping, you can setup rates for *everywhere* to simulate origin based rates.

    I am from Spain, and for example if a spanish company buys from us and it needs the shipment to be sent to France for example, than we ALLWAYS send the INVOICE BILL to the spanish company that bought from us, independent where the product goes.

    Another example. If you from England buy from us, but you need the shipment to be sent to Italy, than we also send you the INVOICE BILL independent where the shipment goes.

    Sorry for my english but it's a little rusty.

    Both cases, I think we should have an option to tax against billing or shipping. I think it is a must for woocommerce.

    I completely agree. It seems very strange that this wouldn't be an option, or at least that there isn't an easy way to change it.
