Product-specific tax rates

Some of the products that you sell can have reduced or increased tax rates or even be tax-exempt. Regardless which tax setup you use in your store — automatic or manual — you can assign different tax rates to different products.

If you’re not sure which taxes apply to your products, consult with a local tax professional.

Assigning product-specific rates for automatic taxes

After you enable automatic taxes, the same standard tax rate of your store’s region applies to all the products. If some of your products require non-standard rates, you can change the tax rate for them.

Available for merchants in the USA, EU, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

To change tax rate for a product:

  1. From your Ecwid admin, go to Catalog → Products.
  2. Open the product.
  3. Click the Taxes tab. You will see the tax rate that is currently applied to this item.
  4. Click Change tax rate for this product:

  5. From the dropdown, choose the tax rate that applies to your product.
    For the US merchants: You can use the search to find the rate you need.
  6. Save the changes.

That’s it! Now, this product will be taxed according to the tax class that you chose.

Repeat the steps for all the products that should be taxed differently in your store.

Assigning product-specific rates for manual taxes

After you manually set up all the necessary taxes for the locations you sell to, you can choose which taxes to assign to certain products in your store. By default, all the taxes are applied to all the products.

To assign tax rates to a product:

  1. From your Ecwid admin, go to Catalog → Products.
  2. Open the product.
  3. Click the Taxes tab. You will see the list of tax rates that are currently active in your store.
  4. Enable the tax rates that apply to this product and disable those that do not apply. If it's a non-taxable product or service, disable all the tax rates.
