Sales Tax on QBSE

Hello there, @MohicanMomma.


Thank you for joining the QuickBooks Community. I'd be happy to help share some information about tracking sales tax in QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE).


QBSE mainly tracks business income and expenses for estimated tax calculations and Schedule C tax filing. Currently, it doesn't have the options to manage sales tax.


However, you can still add sales tax when creating an invoice. Just add a separate line item and enter the amount of the sales tax manually.


Here's how:

  1. Click Add work
  2. Type in Sales Tax in the Description field.
  3. Use Flat rate.
  4. Enter the amount.
  5. Click Add to invoice.

For more details, I recommend checking these articles about sales tax: 

If you need to manage and calculate sales tax automatically, you can check out other versions of QuickBooks Online to see which product is right for you: QuickBooks Online Comparison.


If you need to reach out for more help, our support agents will be able to help you get to a resolution quickly.

Drop me a comment below if you have any other questions about sales tax in QBSE. Wishing you and your business continued success.
