Webgility has three configurations to collect sales tax. We recommend using My Online Store calculates tax as your sales tax configuration.

Here’s the differences between the options to help you determine which sales tax configuration is right for your business. Be sure to ask your Webgility Implementation Manager for the best option for your business.

Using the Online Store to calculate tax

If you use your online store to collect sales tax, it blocks QuickBooks from using it’s built in sales tax feature and will show the sales tax as a line item on the receipt. You’ll need to set up a new Tax Location and tax item to record into QuickBooks Point of Sale.

This option should be used if you need to collect a variable tax rate for your state but don’t anticipate collecting for other states.

Example: In California, if a product is sold in San Francisco and bought by a customer in Fresno, the order should be taxed at the local rate for Fresno. But since the remittance goes to the same collection agency, using a single line item to track the tax allows for the variable rate and easy tracking of what is owed.

Here is how to use your online store to calculate tax.

Using QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale to calculate tax

  • You don’t anticipate having to collect sales taxes at a different rate than what is collected in your brick-and-mortar store. If you do not hit any threshold for cross-state tax nexus remittance and you have a single tax rate across your state, this is the best option.
  • You’ve built out a tax nexus of Tax Locations in QuickBooks Point of Sale. In this case, you need a separate Tax Location. When you do this, you need to map the individual Tax Jurisdictions you care about collecting for remittance and map them (either by state, county or zip code) within Webgility Desktop.

Note: This option can be time consuming to set up and maintain, since you may need to remit to hundreds of tax jurisdictions. In addition to the number, local taxes change regularly and the tax locations in QuickBooks Point of Sale would have to be regularly adjusted to match.
