Hi casiesalikin01,

 

Welcome to Community!  It's important that you're able to track your sales tax accurately in QuickBooks Online, in keeping aligned with government guidelines.  I'd be happy to help!

 

When creating a journal entry to balance your books, the sales tax must be entered on the same line as the associated item.  When adding it as a separate line item, it won't reflect in the sales tax agency.  I suggest reviewing the entry and make the necessary changes to ensure a positive outcome on your books.

 

If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach back out.  We would be glad to assist!

I enter a line item that requires taxes to be applied. However, the "TAX ITEM" collum won't let me enter anything into it. And the drop-down arrow is not functioning. How do I enable this feature?

Hi there gjw1979,

 

Thanks for reaching out about creating journal entries. QuickBooks Online is a great tool bl e to help keep track of sales tax on transactions so you know the amount owed to the government. I can provide some assistance with missing sections when creating a journal entry.

 

One possible cause for this information missing would be browsing data. These temporary files can accumulate in your browser, device and network and cause errors in any cloud-based software like QuickBooks Online like missing fields and buttons. Here are some steps to try before sending a new invite once more, and also to try before trying to accept the invite:

 

Let me know if this resolves the error, or if you have any other questions.
