i'm using magento CE, and i'm struggling with this issue:

if i order a product at 75€, then choose a shipping method in the checkout process, i want the tax to be calculated on the product price + the shipping method price. Actually, only the product price is considered.

Here's my tax configuration : enter image description here

I tried many combinations before going back to my default settings, but i never got the shipping method price to get included.


Setup under Sales > Tax > Tax Classes --Taxable Goods --Shipping

Setup under Sales > Tax > Manage Tax Rules

In you rules have you checked: "Product tax classes" both classes for "Taxable Goods" and "Shipping"?

Are you using custom template? If yes then compare file corresponding to estimated shipping block (checkout/cart/shipping.phtml) with default template - there's code for displaying both prices.

If nothing helps, try to setup to display both prices for shipping - Including and Excluding (maybe you have your excluding shipping cost setup with wrong value) if not then different cost should be displayed.

P.S. My Tax configuration: enter image description here

  • I'm using a custom product tax class i named "TVA", representing 20% of my product's price for france. I'm using a template i made, but i was always starting from the core files while i was developing. the "Shipping" tax class wasn't selected in my tax rules, but it doesn't seems to change anything on my order summary – SupFrig Sep 30 '14 at 10:18
  • Did you changed on Configuration > Tax the first option: From: Tax Class for Shipping: None into Tax Class for Shipping: Shipping? (just like in your screenshot), you can also try choosing there the TVA rate which's equal into 20% (if the goods are at same tax rate as shipping) . – versedi Sep 30 '14 at 10:29
  • Don't forget to add "Shipping" product tax class in your TAX RULES. – versedi Sep 30 '14 at 10:36
  • okay, i still don't get the right calculation (most probably an including vs exluding tax settings at some point), but now my tax price increase when i set a shipping method. I was missing both "select shipping in the tax rule" and the first option on my configuration. I was struggling with this from soo long, many thanks to both of you. – SupFrig Sep 30 '14 at 11:02
  • Please post a simple screenshot with an example on cart - I could see what's calculating which rows :) – versedi Oct 1 '14 at 5:27
