How does a taxable sale transaction works?
- On your sales forms, there are two areas that you’ll see sales tax.
- The item tax: If the item is taxable,this is used for tracking it. If you’ve marked the item as taxable when you set it up,these will populate automatically.
- The tax item or group: It shows the tax rate for the sales tax item or group you set up.
- On the sales form,QuickBooks will calculate the total of anything taxable and then adds it up with the sales tax rate.
How to make changes in the sales tax rate for a single sale?
- From a sale, you may need to change or remove the sales tax, for instance, your client is a non-profit organization.
- Change the item tax: Select the taxable area to add or remove a T from the Tax column of the sales form
- Change a tax item or group: Choose the tax item/group from the Tax dropdown. A new item can also be set up. You just need to start typing the sales tax name and then click on Set up when prompted.
