I recently realized that all my tax rules were created 6 times with the exact same name and settings. I have deleted all the duplicates, but for some reason the old rules can still be chosen when editing tax rules per product.

How do I make them disappear completely?

I'm guessing you removed the tax rules under Sales > Tax > Manage Tax Rules but didn't remove the Sales > Tax > Product Tax Classes which are shown when editing a product

  • You are absolute right. Thank you very much! How do I know which product tax classes represents which tax rules? They seem to contain nothing but a name when editing them... Commented Sep 9, 2015 at 8:35
  • Correct. and they don't do that much anyway. You have to map them to a tax rule for them to have effect Commented Sep 9, 2015 at 8:45
  • Makes sense. Thanks. Damn, TAX in magento is confusing... Commented Sep 9, 2015 at 8:51
