The Tax module provides a flexible way to evaluate taxes by using different tax providers and core abstractions for custom tax providers. It allows easy addition of custom rules for tax calculation.

The module includes FixedRateTaxProvider as a built-in tax provider.

The module provides an API to work with the tax provider list and allows you to connect the tax providers to a selected store. The list of available tax providers can be viewed and edited on the UI.
