I'm trying to hide tax amount on one page checkout. Hiding that in phtml files is not a problem, but I want to hide it using xml file.

To that moment I have this code in my local.xml file:

<reference name="content">
    <block type="sales/order_view" name="sales.order.view">
        <block type="sales/order_items" name="order_items" template="sales/order/items.phtml">
            <block type="sales/order_totals" name="order_totals" template="sales/order/totals.phtml">
              <action method="unsetChild">

But it didn't work. Any sugestion?

  • So why do you use sales_order_view layout handle then? – user487772 Mar 31 '14 at 11:11
  • Sorry but I don't know which type of layout should I use to this? – Adrian Mar 31 '14 at 11:16

Unfortunately you can't do it via XML layouts as you can only remove blocks which were previously defined and taxes at the OPC are not separated into a block.

So if you want your products to have taxes but hide them at checkout (which can actually be a legal issue in some countries) you have to modify templates.
