You have the opton to charge more or less for people in specific areas. To do so, click on the Regional Surcharges tab in the config of an advanced shipping profile. Click the Add Another Surcharge link. Now you can select either to add (+) or substract (-) a set amount or rate then restrict the surcharge to specific states, countries, or zip codes. Note that the surcharge will be applied if any of the restrictions are true. So if you have the state of Florida selected and the United States selected, people from Texas will be charged the surcharge because they live in the United States. If you only want people from Florida to pay the extra surcharge, then only choose Florida from the states list and select nothing for the country.
