Set up Taxes

Using Stripe Taxes


Taxes are not fun but they need to be handled. Stripe & Servicebot can make it easier for you, following are the steps to collect Taxes.

Create Tax Rate in Stripe

The first thing you need to do is to create a Tax Rate in Stripe. That can be done here. Once you have a tax rate created, you can grab the ID of it, it would look like 'txr_1Gv6cMHSBbxioZ9IxeKTDxSo'.

Tax Rates on Stripe Dashboard
Create new Tax Rate

Add to embed snippet

This value will be used to pass in the tax rate to the Servicebot embed snippet. It will be added to the window setting in an option called 'default_tax_rates'. Setting this on your Plan Picker, Pricing Page, or Checkout form will add the tax rate to your subscription.

<div id="servicebot-subscription-portal"></div>
window.servicebotSettings = {
"billing_page_id": "6rCMLkYDFjW1yDCRQkUH",
"options": {
"default_tax_rates": [
(function () { var s = document.createElement('script'); s.src = ''; s.async = true; s.type = 'text/javascript'; var x = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; x.parentNode.insertBefore(s, x); })();

Servicebot does not yet show the tax amounts applied to amount totals on checkout. There are some enhancements planned around that in the short term.
