Canadian Taxes particularly Quebec that taxes on the total of the order PLUS the GST
In Quebec the sales tax is a combination of the federal GST and the provincial QST but the Quebec government has the hide to tax on the total of the order PLUS the GST . Eg
Order total: $100
GST: 5% * $100 = $5 so
Order total + GST = $105
QST: 8.5% * $105 (not $100) = $8.925
I found this response (http://drupal.org/node/1251444) which I'm struggling to follow ... well actually I'm struggling to get to first base, ie to get the GST to appear before/above the QST on the checkout form. I have hunted far and wide to try and find a screen that enables me to enter a weighting to rearrange the the two taxes. The most intuitive place for me is on the Taxes form but there is no weighting column on this form.
Ideally,it would be nice if Randy would do a quick video for us Canadians to complete the series on Sales Taxes.
