Drupal Commerce 2: How to Set up Taxes

Setting up taxes in Drupal Commerce 2 is a snap. The component comes bundled with some predefined tax rate plugins, such as Canadian sales tax and European Union VAT. This means that enabling these tax types is as easy as checking a box. More complicated tax regions, like you would find in the United States, have integrations available with services such as Avalara AvaTax, TaxCloud and more. Custom tax types can also be created out-of-the-box.

In this Acro Media Tech Talk video, we user our Urban Hipster Commerce 2 demo site to quickly show you how to configure the predefined tax plugins as well as add a custom tax type. 

Its important to note that this video was recorded before the official 2.0 release of Drupal Commerce. The current state of the Taxes sub-module is even more robust than what you see here, and additional plugins have been added out-of-the-box. Documentation is also still lacking at the time of this post, however, we've added a link anyway so that whoever finds this in the future will benefit.
