I have created a new tax vendor without the piggyback setting checked as suggested. When I try to update the existing sales tax code, it does not let me change to the new tax vendor. It only allows me to change the %.
The tax has not been piggyback since the rate changed in 2013
I appreciate you reaching out to the Community. I'd be happy to happy share more info about changing the tax code on the new vendor. At this time, QuickBooks doesn't offer the the ability to change the sales tax vendor on the sales tax because there's existing transactions already. You'd need to manually create a new sales tax code which you can set up from the vendor to the sales tax code. Here's a helpful article from our Community:

this is happening to me too. The 5% GST and 9.975% QST is being totaled at 15.47375% with a "Piggyback calculation". How do I remove this calculation and just have the tax % total to 14.975%
Hi there C5G7,
It's vital that all your transactions have the correct tax applied so that your filings to the government can be accurate. QuickBooks is a great tool that has the ability to keep track of multiple sales tax codes in order to be able to be as accurate as possible with your sales tax reporting. I can point you in the right direction for assistance with sales tax codes.
For assistance with editing your sales tax code so that it has the correct total, I recommend reaching out to the QuickBooks Desktop support team. They'll be able to assist you in setting up the tax code correctly so that it affects the correct accounts and calculates the right percentage. You can use one of the options provided in the Quickbooks Desktop software support policies.

I actually figured it out. QB correctly adds the tax if the order of the lines entered are done a specific way and only 2 lines are entered.
Enter the QST ITC on line 1 at 9.975% rate, then enter the GST ITC on line 2 at 5.0% rate (do not enter a 3rd line), this should add to 14.975%. see picture attached. I did the same for the Collected QST.
I attached my QST setting as well for reference.
I hope this helps!
