https://account.microsoft.com/billing/addresses#/

go here, and click on where it says payment & billing, click on the address book, make sure your new one is preferred, once i did that it worked.
I've never seen this before. It must have been added fairly recently. It must have updated automatically for people because my address is there.

Either way, I'm glad you figured it out. I'll update the OP with this link. Thanks for finding it.

Will paypal work? Otherwise this is still a great tutorial. How much tax is actually put on a game on average?

PayPal should work. Just make sure your billing on PayPal is the same as the Xbox One just to be safe. The tax all depends on your State/Province.

When you go to edit an address it'll say "Set as your preferred billing and shipping address" at the bottom:

This box doesn't appear, I don't know why! In both accounts that I tried! I changed the US address to Cali, as they told here, but passed more than 21 hours and nothing. I think that is something with this ''set as preferred'' that I didn't saw.

I'm not entirely sure if Amazon puts tax on Digital Games. I know they don't charge tax for Gift Cards, so that's why I said to buy an Xbox Currency Card from them.
