Hi there, LWong.
Thank you for visiting again the QuickBooks Community. I'll be providing details on how tax works in QuickBooks Online. Then, I'll ensure to share alternative ways on how to achieve your goal.
QuickBooks Online can automatically do the sales tax calculations for you on your sales transactions like invoices and receipts for easy and accurate filings. With this, adding sales tax to the purchase order is currently unavailable in QBO.
However, I suggest going to the Apps center inside QBO. From there, you're able to see hundreds of apps that you can integrate to help you create a PO and allow you to add tax codes/amounts/rates to a column.
Lastly, you may refer to this article to view steps on how you can run a specific report that will reflect all payments made to vendors: Run a report with vendor totals.
