The following page is displayed:
To add a new tax definition, enter the following information (required fields have an asterisk next to the label):
|Name *||Name for the tax. This information is what will appear in the drop-down list of available taxes when placing an order, so it needs to be self-explanatory.|

|Description||an optional description for the tax. This will only be seen in the Tax Maintenance screen.|
When you have finished, click Add in the Actions menu.
This adds the new tax definition to the list of existing definitions.
