Configure tax settings

If your business charges tax in the United States, you need to configure your tax settings in Merchant Center. Follow the instructions below and then click ‘Done’ when you’re finished.
Open your Google Merchant Tax settings
Under the ‘Tax setup’ section, select Configure tax and set up nexus
Click on the ‘+’ button and select the state where you charge tax



Next set the tax rate. In most cases, the tax rate should be ‘Destination-based’.
If you charge tax on shipping, select ‘Tax on shipping’.
Click the ‘Save’ button at the bottom of the screen


In case you have multiple tax nexuses, repeat steps 3 – 6 for each state.

If you have a more complex tax setup we recommend reading the official documentation from Google
