GET/sales_tax/{countryCode}/{jurisdictionId}

This call gets the current sales tax table entry for a specific tax jurisdiction. Specify the jurisdiction to retrieve using the countryCode and jurisdictionId path parameters. All four response fields will be returned if a sales tax entry exists for the tax jurisdiction. Otherwise, the response will be returned as empty.

Important! In most US states and territories, eBay now 'collects and remits' sales tax, so sellers can no longer configure sales tax rates for these states/territories.
