Can't seem to figure out how to adjust the sales tax rate

I'm here to ensure you can update your sales tax rate, accounting319.


I've got two options on how to adjust the sales tax rate in QuickBooks Online. We can either go through the Tax Center or to the transaction and override the sales tax rate.


To update the sales tax rate via Tax Center:

  1. Go to the Taxes tab and select Sales Tax.
  2. Under Related Tasks, select Add/edit tax rates and agencies.
  3. In the Sales Tax Rates and Agencies table, choose the rate you want to change and select Edit.
  4. In the Edit Sales Tax Component window, change the rate.
  5. Click Save.

To override the sales tax rate:

  1. In your Invoice page, click the "See the math".
  2. Click the Override this amount link.
  3. Enter the new Rate and select a Reason.
  4. Click Confirm, then Close.
