Good day, gartammy41.


Before you can add tax, we'll to set up first your sales tax. To do so, you can follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Taxes tab and select Sales tax.
  2. Select Set up sales tax.
  3. Verify your address. Tax calculations will be base on the address entered.
  4. Next, you'll be asked if you are required to collect taxes outside of your home state.
  5. If you need to collect taxes in multiple states, select Add Agency.
  6. Select Got it.

Refer to this article as your guide: Set up and use Sales Tax


We also need to make sure that you add sales tax categories to your products and services. Once done, you can now create expense transactions.
