Changing Sales tax Rates

Hello and good day, Cedric.


I'd be glad to provide the steps you need. Here's how you can modify the sales tax rate:


  1. Go to Lists Item List.
  2. Find the sales tax item you want to modify and right-click on it.
  3. Select Edit Item.
  4. Update the rate, and then click OK.


The following article also includes more details about sales tax in QuickBooks Desktop: Set up sales tax in QuickBooks Desktop.


If there's anything else you need, please don't hesitate to get back to me. Take care!
