Sales tax - quickbooks desktop version

Can you compute sales tax automatically based on the customer's address in QuickBooks Desktop. By automatically I mean Quickbooks automatically does the calculation from sales tax information they have, I don't ever have to enter any sales tax jurisdictions or rates manually into Quickbooks first.

Sales tax - quickbooks desktop version

Good evening, @mikefinleyco


Thanks for posting your question here. I'd be happy to provide insights about commuting sales tax automatically based on the customer's address. 


At this time, QuickBooks Desktop doesn't offer a feature that bases the sales tax automatically off of a customer's address. I can see how this feature would be helpful to you and your business. I will send this feedback on your behalf so our developers will be aware of how we can improve your QuickBooks Desktop experience. 


For now, In QuickBooks Desktop you can set up different sales and apply them. There's a default one you can choose in the Preferences section. You can refer to this article as it has detailed instructions with setting with sales tax: Set up sales tax in QuickBooks Desktop
