"Local Pickup" option need to be able to add in sales tax
Please add in the capability for the "local pickup" option to have a state sales tax associated with it. I"m really surprised this is not already a standard feature. Because even if a buyer purchases an item who is not from our state, but then selects the "local pickup" option, we are required to collect sales tax from this purchase based on the fact it was a local pickup in the state.
Please add this functionality in the next core update of woocommerce.
has this been implemented yet?
Agreed. I have a client that requested this. Although rare, it's not unusual for a site visitor to buy online and want to pick up their items at the local store. In that case, local sales tax must be applied if there is a local sales tax.
It mis-represents the price when a customer buys online, selects "In-Store Pick Up," is quoted a sales tax of zero, and is hit up for an additional charge for sales tax when they walk into the store.
(PS: yes, they sell taxable items too.)
I need this too. I'm setting up a cart for a wholesale coffee roaster who is open to the public for coffee tastings in the weekends. They aren't set up with a cash register or a way to accept credit cards. We thought it would be good to give the locals a way to pay for their purchases online. In California, all retailers charge sales tax to walk-ins regardless of where they're from. In this case the majority of "Local Pickup" sales will be to in-state customers. There is no legal exemption for sales tax in this case.
Please add this function!!!

Yes, I also need this functionality. I have customers who order gifts to be delivered to clients in town, and we have to charge tax on these orders regardless of the billing address. I have seen a couple other forums where people are asking for this, and there seems to be no response.
If possible, we could use to option to select certain shipping methods (local pickup, local delivery) to charge tax regardless of the purchasers state or zip code

I desperately need this functionality as well. We use our online store for sales when we are at trade shows and I am having a tough time setting up tax to always charge tax when a physical product is sold in our state. Desperately need this like yesterday.
