In the EU, you have go to label if a price is incl. or excl. tax in the shop frontend. If you run different shops where you have got both settings, it could be realized with different custom translation strings which are store view specific. Magento has the information, if a price is incl or excl tax, but the question is how to code it. In Magento1, I solved it with the following code, but so far I have no idea how to do it with Magento2:

<?php $tax_display_type = Mage::getStoreConfig(
   <?php if ($tax_display_type == 2): ?>
    <?php echo $this->__('Incl. Tax') ?> 
<?php else: ?>
    <?php echo $this->__('Excl. Tax') ?> 
<?php endif;?>

Any ideas? Thank you very much!

        return $html;
  • Thank you very much for your reply! Can you be more specific about how the procedure around? I added the code to the site but it does not show up. Sorry for the pretty basic question, I am new to Magento2. I run php bin/magento setup:upgrade and php bin/magento cache:clean but its not showing up. Am I missing something?
