Why are my customers seeing "Unfortunately, we could not calculate tax for your order" in Magento?


A customer is trying to check out but they see the error message "Unfortunately, we could not calculate tax for your order. Please try again with a different address or contact us to complete your order." repeatedly.




  • This is the generic front end error message in Magento, it indicates there is not enough information to calculate tax
    • Typically it is caused by an invalid address, refer to your Magento logs for more information on the specific cause
