Tax groups are a grouping of agencies, typically local, county, and state, that total the tax charged for that area. Without Tax Groups defined, you won't be able to charge or assign sales tax to your customer and orders.
NOTE: Before you can create Tax Groups, you must create the tax agencies for the group. For more information please refer to the Creating Tax Agencies article.
