COGS is based on inventory sales when you file taxes

 

I would create an expense account called Cost of Sales (COS) and use that.  If you want it above the operating expenses as COGS is, create COS as a cogs type account, make the default COGS account inactive (I am not sure if QBO will allow that but worth  a try)
