Assessing tax on courses and programs

Community Explorer

We are looking into best ways to calculate and add in taxes that are based on the address of the participant.

We have some colleges that may need to start charging sales tax on some course offerings. Our current payment integration does not allow for sales tax calculation after the request has been sent from Catalog.

On our first inquiry, Instructure said they do not have a tax feature in Catalog.

I'm curious if other Catalog clients have the need to add taxes on their courses...and if so, what does that process look like for you?

...and where does it take place: Catalog or integrated payment vendor... or perhaps somewhere in-between?
