Taxes section allows Administrators to add and manage Tax Classes. Tax Classes are used to group Products with one or more Tax Rules. Multiple Products can be associated with a Tax Class.

Taxes in Multifront consist of only one Tax Type: Sales Tax. However, this one provider can be used to set up and configure Sales Taxes for all countries, each with potentially different Tax Rates. Not to mention you can create different Tax Classes that use different Rules based on things like Product Types and Categories

Example: You serve many customers in Japan and need to account for their consumption tax. You can create your own tax provider, named something like "JapanConsumptionTax", which performs the calculations necessary for all your Japanese customers.
