Tax settings determine when and how your currently configured taxes are applied.
When enabled, a tax is applied to the overall product - i.e., the tax will be applied to any decorations added to the product as well as to the blank product.
Keep in mind that taxes are applied at the line item level in DecoNetwork. If you calculate taxes yourself by applying taxes to the whole order rather than to each line item, the resulting tax amount may vary slightly from the tax amount calculated in DecoNetwork due to rounding. For information on how rounding is applied in DecoNetwork, read the help article, How does rounding work in DecoNetwork?.
