Automatic calculation of TAX (VAT) when creating quotes

Currently, we have to manually calculate the TAX amount when creating a quote. 


Ideally, we would set the TAX % and have the system automatically calculate the value (in the same way you can with a formula withing MS Excel).



1) Saves time

2) Avoids mistakes.

I'm very pleased to announce that percentage based taxes (as well as discounts and fees) are now live and available to all users of Quotes! It seems that a few commenters here are looking for more sophisticated functionality such as auto-calculation of tax by region, setting defaults, etc. If you are interested in any additional feature like that, please file a new separate ideas post so we can accurately track community interest on those additional ideas. Thank you again for your feedback and patience!

Absurd that the suggested solution from Hubspot is to upvote this as an Idea in 2021. This should be a standard feature.




I saw that many users already asked for this. How can we add sales tax to quotes that automatically calculate it according to the zip code of the customer?

This is a very important need as we so often forget to add it or it creates room for error. Any idea if there is a workaround for this?
