    From what I can tell, you can only specify tax rate for four states, but what about the rest? I want to calculate the tax on the product based on where they are shipping to, but tax in each state is different.

    How can I accomplish this?

    Why do you want to set up for all states? Do you plan on have a business location in all 50 states? Some states do not charge a state sales tax or local taxes.

    Example, Nevada.

    I collect sales tax from the following states: LA, TX MD/DC I lived in Louisiana for 13 years, Maryland/DC for 13 months and now I am in Texas.

    I started my business in Lousiana in 1996 - 2004
    Maryland/DC area: 2004 - 2005
    Louisiana 2005 - 2008
    Texas 2008 - Present

    When I moved back to Louisiana I used the same Tax ID numbers. I never closed the accounts since I still had a home in that State as well as Maryland.

    As of today, I still send Tax info to all locations.
