In this lesson we'll try a practical example of some Rules module concepts for the Sweet Tees store. Drupal Commerce’s Tax module stores its tax charging in Rules. Before we can open up our store to the public, we need to ensure that all applicable sales taxes are being applied to our items. Because Sweet Tees is based in California, we will need to charge 7.25% sales tax on all products sold if the customer lives in the state of California. This means we need to set up a conditional tax rate to only apply to California.
