Why is Magento displaying a higher rate than what was calculated

Overview

In the Tax percent field it displays a higher rate than what was used to calculate the tax amount

Environment

Magento

Resolution

  • The Magento Tax Percent field returns the rate for all jurisdictions regardless of that jurisdiction being taxable or non-taxable
  • If you have a product that was only taxable at the state rate it would display the entire tax rate but tax would calculate just on the state portion of the sale
