Can I set a different Tax rate for the in-store pickup customers?

I would like to set our store up so that if a customer selects the in-store pickup option, then the tax rate changes to a specific %. Since our city's tax rate is different than the county and the state all in store pickups must be charged this different rate. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Hmm, do you use Avalara for tax calculation or Tax by Zip Code calculations? Technically, it should still be possible using either of these?

 
Thank you,

No, we don't use Avalara. I'm told that what I want to do isn't possible because there is no way for shipping rules to affect tax rates. I'm pretty much stuck at this point on this item unless there is a real solution out there.

Hmm, this would have to be custom yes, but there could be a trick...

We could make a modification which would change their address to your store's addres if they choose local pickup. This way, you could use the shipping address for the tax calculation, and since their address would be in your tax/zip, the tax rate on the order would be correctly updated to reflect... email me at jsimacek @ compunix.us  for a quote!

Thank you,
