Currently, tax rates only apply to items. It does not apply tax to any shipping charge that may be on the order as well. However, shipping charges are taxable in NYS. Please add the ability to apply tax to the shipping charge on an order.

Need this to be functional.

This is also required in France.
We need to have a dedicated and separated line for Shipping with tax details.

Adding Shipping Charge as a Line Item is not how it should be achieved. Rather,
The Shipping Charge Field should accompany a Tax Rate Selection field, (or should automatically apply the highest tax rate charged in that invoice for principal goods or line items)
and the Shipping Charge be added to the Sub-Total,
the Tax amount be added to the respective Total Tax Amount
Total Table Will look like
Total Item Value
Shipping Charge @ Tax Name & Rate
Sub-Total (Incld Shipping Charge)
Tax Amount 1
Tax AMount 2
Invoice Total (Incld Taxes)
Since, Multiple Tax Rates for Shipping charges is not to be charged in the same invoice, rather the highest tax rate charged in an invoice for the principal goods will be charged for Shipping/Packing/Forwarding charges.
Hence, the above solution is feasible.
I hope this helps.

Its is also required in INDIA. As per Section 15, CGST Act 2017, Shipping, Packing, Forwarding or any other charges which are incurred by the supplier and charged to the customer, are liable to be taxed at the Highest GST Rate charged in that Invoice. Eg,
Value of Goods 1= 10000 @18% IGST
Value of Goods 2= 9000 @12% IGST
Packing charges= 1000 @(will be charged at IGST rate of goods 1 i.e. @18%)
IGST 18%= 1980
IGST 12%= 1080
This is required in Canada as well. It will be good as an option either at set up (for all transactions) or on sales order (for individual sales order) to choose GST added to the freight charge or not.
required in australia also - shipping needs to be a separate transaction not a line item

Required here in the UK as well. Zoho's workround of delivery as a line item is not possible if integrating with an online store as delivery will always be applied in the checkout, not as a product.
This is also required for UK edition as Shipping is very much taxable here as well
