In Magento, we can create Tax Rules that determine the amount of tax that a customer pays, based upon the shipping address, product class, and customer class. Each customer is assigned to a customer class, and each product is assigned a product class. Magento 2 analyzes the shopping cart of each customer and calculates the appropriate tax according to the customer and product classes, and the region. It’s very important for your revenue so why don’t learn to create Tax Rules by yourself?
