Re: Wher do i add taxes on my invoices

It's nice to have you here in the Community, @renewservices.


I'm here to guide you on where to add the sales tax on your invoices in QuickBooks Online.


To add the taxes, you can go to Products and Services, then assign tax categories to your inventory. Setting up your tax categories helps you calculate sales tax on invoices.


Here's how:


  1. Go to the Gear icon and select Products and Services.
  2. Click New or, select Edit for one of your existing items.
  3. On the “Product/Service information” window, choose the Is taxable checkbox.
  4. Under the Sales tax category drop-down, then select the Taxable-standard rate.
  5. Hit Save and close.

If you haven't set up your sales tax, you can click Add a sales tax on your invoices. Refer to this article for more information and detailed steps: Set up your Sales Tax.


Here's an article for your reference about assigning tax categories to the items and services: Add Sales Tax Categories to your Products and Services.


For future reference, you can refer to this article about how to design your invoices and different ways to send an invoice to your customer:
