I guess I am confused on how I should set up the taxes on OpenCart. The store will be selling to the US and Japan. We want to charge tax to only CA residents. Ultimately I want the sales tax to reflect in the total. It doesn't make sense to me that OpenCart would display the tax in the shopping cart as we don't know the customer's address at that point.
Right now I have a Tax Class titled Taxable Goods and it is set to the CA Sales Tax rate based on Shipping Address. I assumed that OpenCart would apply this rule to all taxable goods and if someone's address is in CA then it would add tax. If not, then no tax is added.
With these rules OpenCart is assuming everyone (non-logged in users) is from CA, thus adding tax and displaying it in the cart.
When I add items to my cart without logging in with a non-CA address, then CA tax is being added to my cart. But when I log in with an account I set up with a shipping address in IL no taxes are added to the cart.
Are my settings wrong or is this the way OpenCart operates? Ideally I don't want taxes to appear until checkout.
How do we configure the shopping cart to do this?

I tried going to settings and changing it to payment address then back to shipping. I even tried none. I have considered changing the state my store is in to someone out of the US. I hope someone can chime in with this.
It may be that when I click on the estimate shipping and taxes it is because Texas is already in there. I am hoping a new user would not have that already selected. But it may be the default since the store is located in Texas. Perhaps someone can add something to their cart and then check the shopping cart to see if it is defaulting to Texas and post a reply here, or you can email me at email@example.com
