Thank you for joining this thread, @xact2019.


I'd be glad to help walk you through creating a sales discount and add it as a line item on the invoice. Let's get started! 


  1. Go to List.
  2. Choose Item List.
  3. Click the Item drop-down arrow at the bottom of the Item List window.
  4. Select New.
  5. Click the Type drop-down, choose Discount.   
  6. Enter the Description and the Amount or % of the discount.
  7. Choose which account in the Chart of Accounts will the discount be mapped.
  8. Select the Tax Code of the Discount.
    • Taxable
    • Non-Taxable
  9. Click Ok


That should do it! For more insights, you may check out this article: Add, edit, and delete items.
