The tax rate setting in the connection configuration of WooCommerce integration is important for defining Default Sales Prices for products on product cards in Katana.

Price per unit on Sales Orders synced from WooCommerce will always match the Cost for a product on a WooCommerce Sales Order even if it's different from the Default Sales Price for the product in Katana.

In Katana, default Sales Prices for products (defined on product cards) do not include any taxes. Taxes are added to products on Sales Orders.

In WooCommerce, the user can select whether taxes are included or not included in product prices. WooCommerce user can change this global store setting in WooCommerce from "WooCommerce" -> "Settings" -> "Tax".

Therefore, how Default Sales Prices are recorded in Katana for products imported from WooCommerce is dependent on your tax settings in WooCommerce.

- If you use "Yes, I will enter prices inclusive of tax" setting in WooCommerce, then we ask for the default tax rate in order to calculate the Default Sales Price for products in Katana without the taxes.

- If you use "No, I will enter prices inclusive of tax" setting in WooCommerce, then we ignore the default tax rate when defining Default Sales Prices for products imported from WooCommerce.
