Hi There,

I have a shop running CC V5 all my products/prices are tax included, when click on one of them u see the price included tax. (thats good)
But when u buy one or putted one in your basket then the basket shows ecl tax price. (thats wrong)

How can i fix it to get tax incl prices in basket.

The invoice is ok i dont need to change that.
It is showing the price and the tax thats ok.
prices of all products are ok too.

Somebody have a fix for the basket ?

Kind regards,

Welcome Tuurtjah! Glad to see you made it to the forums.

Of the things you said were ok, was one of them the fact that the expected bottom-line Total Cost of the order is the same no matter if the price shown includes tax versus the price listed excludes tax, but the tax is a subtotal item?

An explanation discussed elsewhere (referring to VAT?) suggested that there is a very real scenario where some customers (depending on European country or USA out-of-state, and customer entitlements):
* must not pay tax,
* should not pay tax,
* are eligible to not pay tax,
* will pay tax but must know it as a separate line item
* everyone else.

Thus, CubeCart5 was programmed this way intentionally.

Is your store's corporate location in a country/locale that gets to collect taxes on all customers regardless of the delivery address?

So, while the code can certainly be edited to suit your desires, may we ask if you are sure this what you need?

Perhaps for your locale, collecting tax when you shouldn't may be just as illegal as not collecting tax when you must. Perhaps not. But it will certainly upset your customers.

Hello Brian,

Thanks for the reply.

We only sell in Holland at the moment with cubecart. private customers have to pay 19% tax.
Thats why i want to show prices including tax. (Thats happening now)
And on the invoice u can see how many tax you pay.(Thats happening to)
But when you put an item in basket u see this

And when u want to confirm u see this

I also checked the incvoice then u see this

The subtotal needs to be with tax
All the products should be incl tax
And when you confirm you have to see the tax you pay.
but the prices for every item needs to be with tax.

Hmm i hope you understand what im trying to tell with my little english dictionary.

And hope there is a solution for this.
Am i the only one who wants this ???

Kind regards,


I see at my other store (os-commerce) the subtotal is also including tax
So it would be nice if we could set that to including to.

example invoice
