The most recent VJS update (0.935) includes the option
for different sales tax rates for different locations.
In Maintenance, Preferences
there is a page which lets you set the sales tax
rate. This is the *standard* sales tax rate and
affects all computers on the network.
There is another page called "Local Defaults" which
includes options which are just for that computer.
The new options at the bottom are for a sales
tax rate that will override the standard rate.
This page of options typically applies to
just that computer you are sitting at.
However, for a user connecting to a central
server via Windows Terminal Services
or Remote Desktop these Local Settings
apply to the Windows Username of whoever logged in.
If you put zero for the Local sales tax rates
then you revert back to the Standard tax rates.
I.e. if you have a store in Town A connecting
to a server in Town B by remote desktop
and a person logs in under JOE, he can set his
special tax rate for Town A.
But if another person logs in from Town A
using the same computer, but uses Windows
username MARY she would also have to set
the tax rate for Town A.
If JOE were to visits Town C and log in
via Remote Desktop/Terminal Services
under the same name JOE he will get the
Town A tax rate. In such a case it is
advised that he have different Windows
Login names for Town A and Town C.
If JOE visits Town B (headquarters) and logs in
under the same name JOE he will be using
the Town B sales tax rate because for that
day he would NOT be using Remote Access
and so he'd get the standard tax rate
(or the special tax rate for that physical
