It took me ages to find a way to import ALL California tax rates into WooCommerce. I started by hand, and after a while I said to myself “California is crazy! I wouldn’t want to be an accountant there!”.
As usual, I looked for existing free and premium plugins, but I decided to do it my way. this tutorial gives you a ready-made CSV with all California US tax rates (as of 9 August 2014). Yes, it’s out of date, but you can download it, see how it is built, revise it with the correct rates, and follow the tutorial.
Option 1: “Automated tax calculations” (2018)
As of 2018, WooCommerce enabled “automated tax calculations” for certain countries, US included. Maybe, you don’t need to do the manual CSV import any longer.
In a nutshell, go to Settings > Tax > Automated taxes > Enable automated taxes and you won’t need to set up taxes manually. Follow the tutorial above as you’ll need a free plugin, as well as Jetpack, in order to make this work.
Option 2: Import taxes CSV in WooCommerce (2014)
1) Go to WooCommerce / Settings / Tax / Standard Rates
2) Click on “Import CSV”
3) Select the CSV file that you can download below
4) Click on “import” – and there you go! A lot of work saved with a free, simple file download
