As a merchant, you might need to charge taxes on your sales (sales taxes in the US, VAT in Europe and Japan, GST in Canada, etc), and then report and remit those taxes to your government. Check with your local tax experts whether you sell taxable products and what are the tax rates associated with them before moving forward with online sales.
There are two ways to set up taxes in your store:
Automatic taxes. They are available for merchants in the USA, the EU, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Automatic taxes provide up-to-date standard rates across the store and can be enabled in one button click.
Manual taxes. If automatic taxes are not available for your country or you sell differently taxed products, you can configure taxes manually.
