## WooCommerce Tax Calculate Incorrectly - WooCommerce (5 posts)

All I am running the WordPress 3.4.1 with the WooCommerce 1.5.8, as of this writing.

i just more confuse in Tax Amount I need help with a Woocommerce problem.
Woocommerce has a "taxable" status for shipping. This option should include tax calculation on shipping (which has to be shown by law in the Netherlands).
However I have selected this option, however the system only calculations tax on the items products, NOT on the shipping costs.
So the tax calculation should be: 21% of (product price + shipping costs) while now it is 21% of product price.

So the problem is,
the tax amount now is 21% of the product: 99.95 - (99.95/1.21) = 17.35. In the shipping settings in woocommerce you can set your shipping to be added to tax calculation (tax status: taxable).

If this option is selected, the tax calculation should actually be:
product costs + shipping costs / ((product costs + shipping costs)/1.21).
So the total of products + shipping = 105.90.
Which means the tax calculation should be 105.90 - (105.90/1.21) = 18.38

Right now
it calculates 99.95 - (99.95/1.21) =17.35
I would like it to calculate 105.90 -(105.90/1.22) = 18.38.

Tax Calculating
Right now
it calculates 99.95(my product price) - (99.95/1.21[tax]) =17.35
I would like it to calculate 105.90 -(105.90/1.22) = 18.38.

The tax row needs to have the 'shipping' column checked also, to state that its also a tax for shipping.

Right now tax is showing and it's calculate tax on product basic amount
look
my product amount us 99.95 and tax is 5.95 to total is 105.95
and in Netherlands law for tax is 21%
So the tax calculation should be: 21% of (product price + shipping costs)
it calculates 99.95(my product price) - (99.95/1.21[tax]) =17.35
I would like it to calculate 105.90 -(105.90/1.22) = 18.38.
so, here tax showing is wrong price
how i edit tax amount ??
Thanks

Taxes do account for shipping if you check the box...

Maybe read http://docs.woothemes.com/document/setting-up-taxes-in-woocommerce/ Its for 2.0 but the same kind of thing applies.
