1.How to set up the account/item RUSH FEE ?

2. What type of account should RUSH FEE be under?

3. Are rush fees taxable or nontaxable code?

Lets say I have the invoice window open and I want to add a rush fee to the order.  Do I add the rush fee percentage before the taxes or after taxes?  Are rush fees in QB need to be percentages or whole amount dollora - example:  + $50.00 vs %50

Glad to have you back, @Eve2019.


Allow me to provide some insights about adding rush fees in QuickBooks Desktop.


Are you trying to add rush fees for your customers' invoice? If so, you'll need to create an item specifically for the fee and apply it on the invoice.


To do that:

  1. Click on List at the top menu bar.
  2. Select on Item List.
  3. On the Item List window, select Item then, New.
  4. Select the type of item you want to create.
  5. Fill in the item fields.
  6. Click on Save.

Once done, you can now create an invoice and select the item that you made. On the other hand, to know the accurate account that rush fees need to be under as well as if it's taxable or not, I'd suggest reaching out to your accountant to ensure you follow your business' method of accounting.
