In some countries sellers are obliged by law to set special taxes on shipping charges. If this is your case, you can do it using a special shipping tax setting in X-Cart.

To find it, please, open the Taxes section in your admin back-end (Store setup > Taxes) and in the Sales Tax tab click on the link to specify tax rates that will apply only to shipping charges.

So you’ll also need to define a tax class applicable to the shipping tax you are setting.
