I need your expert opinion how to setup tax for a product for different provinces/states of a country. For example, in Canada, each province has its own percentage of tax. I have created tax class for each province with its own tax rate but how to apply it with products. I want to apply applicable tax class when customer selects his address. I have seen that I can apply a tax class for a product but in that case, tax is not applied for other provinces for that particular product. Do I need to create a product for each province and apply applicable tax class to those products? Or do you suggest a better way?

Welcome to AbanteCart Ahmads,

You can set up one tax class per product. Under this tax class, you create tax rate for any location (Province) you ship product to.
After you assign this tax class to the product, the right tax rate will be picked based on customers shipping address.

FYI, if you have make provinces that you need to deal with, I suggest to check Avatax service. This might reduce your headache with tax dealing:
