Taxes are required for sales of your goods within a specific region. These taxes may also apply depending on region to which your goods are being delivered

By default in PrestaShop, a tax applies to all countries/states/zones. If order to apply a specific tax rate for a single country or a set of countries (and not some others), you must create a tax rule. The tax rule is then applied on a per-product basis, during the creation of the product Prices tab.

In PrestaShop, taxes are first defined and then used in a Tax Rule. You cannot directly apply a tax to a product, you can only apply tax rules. Therefore, you must first register all relevant taxes, and then create a tax rule for that tax in order to specify the countries the tax applies, and finally set the tax rule to the product.

In tax data you can change tax rate for particular locales or tax rule behavior.
