Show tax rate on invoice

My customers want to see what tax rate we are charging them on the invoice. The rate used to appear under subtotal but now only the calculated amount shows and not the rate. How do I add the tax rate back into the invoice?

Show tax rate on invoice

Thanks for visiting in the Community, @Debbie R. I can share a few details about the tax rate in QuickBooks Online.


I can see that option to show invoice tax rate is beneficial for you and your customer. But currently, only the calculated tax amount will appear in the invoice.


Alternatively, you can attach a document to your invoice showing the tax rate applied.


Here's how:

  1. Go to the Sales menu and choose the Invoices tab.
  2. Click the invoice and select the Edit invoice option.
  3. From the bottom left, choose Attachments.
  4. Browse and select the document you want to attach.
  5. Click Open, then choose Save or Save and send.



For more information, please see this article: Attachments in QuickBooks Online.

Will this ever be an option again?

I have a lot of separate custom rates set for different areas, and I need them to be displayed for our Monthly GRT

This is ridiculous!  I too need the sales tax rate to show on the invoices.  I can't believe this is not an option.  It should be very simple, QB get on with it and make this possible, please!!
