I CAN'T SEEM TO FIGURE THIS OUT!  My question is:  How do I setup the SALES TAX RATES for all CALIFORNIA CITIES so that the customer is charged the correct SALES TAX RATE based on their BILLING ADDRESS or ZIP CODE?  Thank you to anyone that can help!!

Hello.
In Admin > System > Setting > Checkout look for Use Customer Tax Address setting. Change it to the Payment address

Thank you for your previous reply.  AC is still not detecting the CITY PAYMENT ADDRESS field when checking out (it only detects the STATE but NOT the CITY).  The ORDER SUMMARY therefore displays ALL of the cities rather than just the single matching city.

I've attached screenshots to show what I've done.  ANY HELP YOU CAN PROVIDE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED as our goal is to go live next week.

Hello.

Check your Location settings. AbanteCart apply Tax for the State/Zone dropdown so you need add SantaRosa zone to your location in this case your customer can select it when checkout.  The City field is not used in Tax calculation

Thank you. That helps me understand the process.

It would be highly helpful if AC could develop functionality that allows US city tax rates to be automatically calculated based on the billing or shipping zip code.  Or based on the city entered in the billing address field. 

A city tax rate extension would also be helpful that could link AC to a city tax program like TaxCloud (simlar to what some other open source ecommerce platforms are doing).  US city tax rates change every year making it difficult to manually change hundreds of city tax rates in AC.

Anyway, thank you for your help! AbanteCart is the best looking and refined ecommerce platform out there right now!
