Great guide on tax guys, what an amazing time saver! Just hit a bump, when I go to import the tax rates I get ‘Rate Percent should be a positive number.’
I checked my version and I’m on 18.104.22.168. Plus I’m on a mac, I saved the file as .csv first off and it gave a success note but the tax rates did not appear. Following that I saved the file as Windows csv file and got the rate percent error above.
Thanks for the feedback, we certainly hoped it would save a lot of time when we put it together.
Sorry to hear your having problems with the import though. This is interesting and not seen this before. As you know myself and @Matthew Ogborne use windows and it was windows csv that we used.
Im going to ping Matt on this one and see if he knows what could be causing this

Hi Alex, Dave, Alex,
Wooohhhaaa Alex x2, how cool is that? :)
‘Rate Percent should be a positive number.’ is the same message that I got in version 1.7 as it wouldn’t allow you to set a value of 0 for the VAT. Can you try manually adding a one as 0 and see if you get the same message?
Got it, it looks as if this behaviour in 22.214.171.124 will be removed in future versions?
Anyway, I just removed the following from app/code/core/Mage/Tax/Model/Calculation/Rate.php –
if (!is_numeric($this->getRate()) || $this->getRate() __(‘Rate Percent should be a positive number.’));
and it works fine now! Thanks for the help above
