Tax by ZIP Code
Enter sales tax by zip code.
The Tax by Zip Code module, developed by Blue Stingray, allows you to manage simple sales tax rules based on zip codes. This is great for small businesses who only have transactions/orders in a few states, and do not need a larger tax solution.

Installation and Configuration
1. Copy the files to your addons folder.
This step will depend on how your installation is configured, but essentially, once the new module is downloaded, you will need to move it into an addons folder on your server. If you are unsure which folder is reserved for addons, you can find that information on your Odoo configuration file.
The files can be placed on your server in multiple ways. We recommend using either SCP/SSH or FTP.
2. Restart your Odoo instance.
Whenever new applications are installed, Odoo will need to be restarted. We highly recommend that you do not do this during your standard hours of operations or in a production environment. There is always a possibility of module conflict, so take precautions to reduce the amount of time your system is unavailable to your users.
You can use the same method that you normally use when restarting Odoo. Typical commands we have encountered are:
# Using a service script on Linux
sudo service odoo-server restart
# Using Docker and Docker-Compose
3. Install The Module.
Once you have restarted your instance, navigate to the Apps screen within your Odoo instance and install the Tax by ZIP Code module. This will open up all of the features for you to access.
That's it! You can now start using the new features!

Taxes by ZIP Code
The module is installed through Odoo's App interface. It will automatically install Odoo dependencies not already installed.
Creating a tax rate for a ZIP Code
Under the Invoicing module, go to Configuration -> Taxes by Zip. This will bring up list of ZIP codes that have a sales tax associated with them. Create a new entry for the ZIP Code. When an order is shipped to a customer with a delivery addess of that zip code, the additional tax will be applied.
Customers may still be charged tax per product or product category, which is the default Odoo tax calculation. Those rules are not managed by this module. So if you have a ZIP Code 99999 configured to have a tax of 3%, and your default tax rate is 5%, then any customers with a shipping address of 99999 will be charged a total tax of 8%.
Making a customer tax exempt
When looking at a customer, there is an Accounting tab with an entry for Resale Number. Putting an alphanumeric entry here with a minimum length of 16 will then make this customer tax exempt.
