Defining tax category display name

After you define your tax categories, you must define the name for each category. If your store is displayed in more than one language, you might need to define a display name for each tax category in each language. For example, in English a tax category might have one name, while in another language, the same tax might have another name.


  1. Open WebSphere Commerce Accelerator
  2. From the Store menu, select Change Tax. The Tax notebook opens.
  3. From the left navigation frame, click Display Names.
  4. From the Language list, select the language.
  5. In the Display Name fields, type the name for the tax category that you want to display to the customers, in the language you selected in step 4.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each language your store supports.
  7. Click OK to save your settings and exit.

What to do next

After you have defined the tax category display name, you are now ready to define tax rates. As outlined in Setting up taxes, continue to step 6, Defining tax rates.
