I am using Joomla 1.5.22 with VertueMart 1.1.6 supporting multiple taxed items with tax payable in only one state (my home state) I have modified the standard release of VirtueMart to correctly calculate tax on mixed items (in my case, cloths which have no tax and candles that do have the 7% in state tax). All works well for PayPal and the back end order processing. With Google checkout (not fast checkout) the total cost is correctly transferred but if the delivery is in state the 7% tax is applied to all items in the order, not just the taxable items.
Unfortunately because the code is encrypted I cannot investigate. I suspect that the checkout module does not take the VirtueMart calculations from the last step of order confirmation but uses the raw item totals and adds tax to that total according to the tax rule. So not using the information on the individual taxable attributes.
Looking through this forum I donít see any useful information, in fact rather concerned that most of the discussions seem to be less then technical.
So how do I go about getting support for this, or have I wasted my $40 and a day getting it to work this far??

Do you get different results when you switch the tax mode between "Based on shipping address" and "Based on vendor address"

I am also assuming that you already have "Enable multiple tax rates?" set to enabled.

Do you have the VAT ids set for the specific products you want taxed at different rates?
