I've seen a similar issue raised in a few other threads, but don't see an official response so here's my specific question. I have set up my cart to calculate sales tax automatically based on Region = California. My business is physically located only in Berkeley, CA. We have no other locations in CA. The cart is calculating sales tax based on the state rate + district rate for all CA addresses. But sellers in California are only required to collect the district rate when shipping to an address in a district in which they have a physical location. For all other shipments to CA addresses (which is 99% of my CA shipments) it should only be using the base 7.5% state rate. I don't want to collect any more taxes from my customers than I'm legally required to.
For more clarity on this, see this detailed explanation: http://blog.taxjar.com/sales-tax-for-california/
-- particularly item #4
, which lays out the proper way to for CA businesses to collect sales tax on in-state shipments.
The tax set up doesn't seem to ask where my business is physically located, which is a very important detail for CA sellers. Is there a fix for this on the horizon? Or perhaps I don't have something configured properly? Thanks...
