Fix WooCommerce Services Tax Reporting
I am using WooCommerce Services to handle my Sales & Use Tax. It seems to work fine, except whenever I download the tax reports, it does not tell me what city & county the tax was collected for. Instead, it gives a generic name like “US-NV-NV TAX-1”.
I learned that I can change these names whenever I go to WooCommerce -> Settings -> Tax. The problem is that anytime a new customer makes a purchase for a city that we have never collected tax on, the new location has a default tax name of “NV TAX”.
This is a problem because even if I change the name after the new location is used & rerun the tax report, it does not change the tax name. Please see the attached screenshot below: https://prntscr.com/um39f2.
As you can see from the screenshot, there is no way in the report to tell what city/county the tax was collected for. This is important when filing taxes.
A great improvement would be to fix this! Tax classes should be automatically named by the city, county, or even zip code!
