    On the tax setup page Ian, Mal says...

    Tax can be added to an order either before the customer is asked to enter their personal details or after, when we know their shipping address. There are pros and cons to both methods; the former maybe a bit more commercial in that some people may be reluctant to enter their personal details before they know how much tax there is. On the other hand using the shipping address allows much more complex calculations to be made and it doesn't depend on the customer to provide the right information.
    TAX BASIS

    No tax will be calculated.
    Tax will be calculated using one of the rates specified below.
    Tax will be calculated using a rate set in your Buy Now links in the field named tax.

    *****************
    Are you ONLY using the last line and have no default tax setup?

    Having trouble with a form or need one building?
    Fast turnaround, but I do charge :)
