Sales tax can be tricky. The numbers and rates change based on where you are, what you sell, and where you ship. Staying on top of the ever-changing tax laws is a job in itself. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our new automatic sales tax experience in QuickBooks® Online.
Gone are the days of manual sales tax. Let QuickBooks do the math for you by calculating the exact amount you need to collect. We’ll let you know when and how much to pay your tax agency, and help you e-file your return directly in the product.
Best of all, we keep track of (and update) more than 60,000 tax laws. That way you can devote your time to your business while QuickBooks automatically keeps you compliant.
How QuickBooks Calculates Sales Tax
It might seem like magic, but there are a variety of factors that go into calculating your tax rate. We use info from each sale to calculate what you need to charge, including:
- Where you’re registered to collect sales tax
- Your physical business address
- The physical address on the sales receipt or invoice
