My school just upgraded from older QB program to QB online. Older QB allowed us to run a transaction statement that included the school's EIN (tax ID number). I went to Settings>Custom Form Styles but there is no field for Tax ID. Any suggestions?
Glad to see you here in the Community, @SusanQ1.
I can help you add the tax number of your school in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
To add the tax number, I'd suggest adding a custom field on the Invoice page. Then, you'll have to manually enter the tax number in the custom field every time you create an invoice.
You can also check out this article for more details on how to customize invoices in QBO: Customize invoices, estimates, and sales receipts.
Please also refer to this article to see different ways on how you can send invoices to your customers in QuickBooks Online: Send an invoice.
Leave me a comment below if you have other questions. I'm more than happy to help. Take care!
Thank you for your response. I see how the tax ID can can be added to an invoice but I need to add it to the customer "statement" in QBO. In the old version of QB, I ran a "transaction (or account ?) summary" that provided a list of child care charges and payments for each family. This form was used for reporting child care expenses on their tax returns, which explains why it needs to include our tax ID number.
Thanks for the clarification, @SusanQ1.
As of now, the option to add a tax ID field in your customer statement is currently not possible in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
As a way around, you can look for a third-party app that lets you customize your customer statement. You can go to the Apps menu in your QBO account and look for an app from there.

Hi there, Rainbow8750.
Thanks for checking out the Community space.
I definitely understand that you need a tax ID field for your year-end statements. Unfortunately, we're unable to recommend or suggest what third-party application to use.
To speed up the searching process, you can enter a keyword, like "year-end statements" in the search bar from the Apps menu or from our QuickBooks App Center. You may also look for some reviews online to be guided in choosing the right app for your business.
Additionally, I've included an article that will help you personalize the appearance of sales forms: Customize invoices, estimates, and sales receipts. This way, your customers will easily recognize your brand.
If I can be of any additional assistance, please don't hesitate to leave a comment below. I'll more than happy to help you again.
We were using an older version of QB that had a report called Transaction Summary and it included the customer's charges and payments and the school’s information, including the tax ID number.
Can you tell me if this report is available in the regular version of QB, just not in QB online? It is extremely frustrating to upgrade the software and find that we are no longer able to run this basic report. .
The option to add the Tax ID number (EIN) on your report or statements is currently unavailable for both QuickBooks Dekstop and QuickBooks Online versions. As a workaround, you may enter the Tax ID details under the customer's address.
Once done, the details will now be added to your statements/reports. I've added these screenshots for your visual references.
