VAT OSS rate description (PRO)

Here you can add a description of the VAT rate that you set for OSS.

Note: In this solution, we based on the WooCommerce mechanism, which is adapted to countries for which taxes are different in different regions. This mechanism assumes that in addition to the VAT number field, other mandatory fields from the order form such as city, postal code, street are also filled in. If these fields are not filled in, the tax reset mechanism may not work.
