QBO Sales Tax setup not allowing city sales tax addition, will only calculate state and county sales tax

Hi,

I am trying to set up sales tax correctly as I am backlogging 2019.  When I have entered the correct business address QBO automatically only adds the state (Texas) and the county sales taxes. We have a city sales tax. When I try to add an agency "Texas" is grayed out. It shows cities and counties for many other states though. How do I add the city sales tax?

 

Thank you

QBO Sales Tax setup not allowing city sales tax addition, will only calculate state and county sales tax

Hello @NikkiAbram,

 

Sales taxes are calculated base on the rates mandated by your agency, adding a new rate is unavailable. I'd recommend contacting them to confirm if you're filing the city sales tax or not.

 

But since it's not included in the sales tax calculation, you'll want to override the sales tax rate every time you create a sales transaction.

  1. On your sales transaction, click the See the math hyperlink.
  2. Select Override this amount.
  3. Enter the overall rate of your sales tax and the amount.
  4. Click Confirm.

I'm including an article here for ideas in managing your customer's transactions.

 

Keep me posted in the comments if you have any other questions.
