How do I make shipping exempt from sales tax? Or does shipping get charged sales tax on an invoice?

Hello there, @ckennedy1.
Thanks for the screenshot. The steps provide by my colleague in this thread is for QuickBooks Deskop Point of Sale. That's why you're not seeing those options on your end.
You'll have a different way of setting this up on your QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise. That being said, let's create a taxable item for shipping services, then add it as another line item to your invoice. This way, your customer will be charged for the shipping tax.
You're now ready to add a shipping service for your customer.
