This is a Basic Guide for a store that will have a Setup of Multiple Locations With the Same Rates For Items, but Different Rates Based On Location. This guide is assuming you only have 2 locations. Stores with more then two will need to take this in consideration when viewing the guide.
The following is a basic suggested model and instructions on how to set up.
Note: The names used for the Tax Types, Locations, Tax Groups, and the amounts set in the Tax Rates, are all for demonstration purposes only. Feel free to use whatever names and rates applicable for your location.
