Does anyone know how to edit the sales tax rate for autos and boats? In NC there is a reduced rate and a cap for each sale.

Hi there, @virginialong,

 

I can give you the steps to update your sales tax rate in QuickBooks Online.

 

If you're using the Automated Sales tax, we're unable to permanently update the sales tax rates. If you opt to change the rate for future transactions, I highly recommend contacting our phone agents. They have the tools to revert your account to the old sales tax setting so you can add a new rate.

 

Here's how to contact us: 

 

  1. Go to the Help (?) menu.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Tap the Contact us button.

However, we can also override the rate directly on the transaction. Here's how:

 

  1. Open the invoice/sales receipt.
  2. Click the Sales tax link below the Subtotal.
  3. On the Let's calculate your tax rate window, click on the Override this amount link.

  4. Enter the Rate, Amount and Reason.

  5. Tap the Confirm button.
  6. Hit on Close.

 

If you're using the Old Sales Tax Center, you can find the complete steps in this article: Edit Sales Tax Rate in QuickBooks Online

 

Please let me know how everything goes, @virginialong. I'm here to help whenever you need further assistance. Have a nice weekend!
