setting up a job in a different state

Hello @Dar279,


You can create a new sales tax item and manually assign it to the income and expense transaction for the profitability of your job. Let me show you how.

  1. Go to Vendors.
  2. Select Sales Tax.
  3. Click Manage Sales Tax.
  4. Under SET UP SALES TAX, select Sales Tax Preferences.
  5. On the SETUP SALES TAX ITEM section, select Add sales tax item.
  6. Enter the name, rate, and agency of your new sales tax item.
  7. Select OK.
  8. Click OK.

From here, you can now start tracking the profitability of your job by following the detailed steps outlined in this article: Tracking job costs in QuickBooks Desktop.


However, I'd still recommend starting the same thread with our experts from TurboTax for guidance about your tax reporting. To do so, here's the link you can use to connect with our dedicated specialists: TurboTax Support Contact Us Page.


Lastly, I've also included this reference for a compilation of articles you can use while working with us: Help Articles for QuickBooks Desktop.


If there's anything else that I can help you with, please let me know in the comments below. I'll be here to lend a hand.

It is not for sales tax but for filing Arizona S-corp tax return

I have some information to make sure these transactions will flow to Turbo Tax correctly, @Dar279.


Since this is for filing Arizona S-Corp tax returns, you’ll want to make sure Tax-line Mapping in QuickBooks Desktop is set in the associated accounts. That way, all needed details for submission will get in the Turbo Tax.


You can refer to these instructions below:


  1. Select the Accountant menu.
  2. Choose Chart of Accounts.
  3. Click the Account dropdown, then hit New.
  4. Select an account, then press Continue.
  5. Select and enter the necessary details.
  6. In the Tax-Line Mapping, select the category.
  7. Hit Save & Close.
