Start in edit preferences to turn ON sales tax. Edit items/services to be taxable and sales tax will automatically calculate and record on invoices for all taxable sales items and all taxable customers.
Hello there, @LupitaG-2019.
I'd like to add additional steps to what john-pero provided above on how you can add sales tax on your invoices.
Adding sales tax on invoices can be done in just a few clicks.
For complete details about setting up sales tax, please check out this link: Set up sales tax in QuickBooks Desktop.
Once done, you can create an invoice or an estimate, and a tax column will now appear on your sales form. I've attached a screenshot for your visual reference:
There you go!
Please let me know how it goes by leaving a reply below. I'll be here if you need further assistance. Thanks for choosing Quickbooks, LupitaG-2019!
@BettyJaneB step 6 will depend more on your state requirements of accrual or cash than your own company choice of accrual or cash for accounting purposes and may in fact override the overall company choice.
Example.- a Cash basis reporting company in a state with accrual sales tax will record and report sales tax on accrual basis.
