If Odoo is set up properly and Odoo knows the customer location, Odoo is
able to show the correct taxes.

If you are refering to Geo-IP localization, you might well know that
this can be an educated guess at best and has no legal value. However,
Odoo allows to configure a GeoIP database in order to localize the
visitor of a website. In addition with the ability to set up multiple
websites, it should be possible to refer a website visitor to an
adequate website.
