Hi, following on from my previous question:

http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx PostID=1094829&SiteID=1

I'm looking for the most suitable place to store tax rates. I thought of creating a new profile object but don't think that is the most efficient place to store the data. The tax rates need to be easily accessible for my tax pipeline, without having a large performance hit.

Thanks in advance

Paul

Paul,

Transaction Config database is the best place. I have a sample component on taxation that I'm going to release shortly that uses that method. I just need to wrap up the last of the unit testing this weekend.

Cheers,
Colin

Hey Paul,

I've been out with the flu this week and I haven't had time to wrap everything up. If you can send me an email (colin.bowern@officialcommunity.com) I'll give you a drop of the code to look over and I'll get it posted in full this weekend.

Thanks,
Colin
