When using QuickBooks, you can make calculations using the calculator under the edit tax, or you can pull up the calculator on your computer, phone or tablet. However, if you want to save time, the QuickMath calculator is the best option.
To access this handy tool, click inside the field you want to calculate and type the equal sign. A small field, designed to look similar to the paper tape generated by an old adding machine, should appear. Type in the numbers you wish to calculate as well as the necessary addition, subtraction, division or multiplication signs. The QuickMath calculator should generate answers as you enter numbers. If you want to clear the field, hit the C key. Use the escape key to leave the calculator.
