    1. Hello Mikhayael, A TAX CLASS in OpenCart is a tax that can be applied to a sale based on the location (billing address, store address, or shipping address). As taxes can differ depending on the location, you can create specific tax classes that would be applied to customers making a sale in that location. I hope that helps to clear up the definition of tax class. Sorry for any confusion. If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.
