Taxes

Welcome back to our forum, @acmaj,

 

Allow me to step in for a moment and share some information to help resolve the errors.

 

If you're using the Automated Sales Tax feature, QuickBooks calculates taxes for shipping charges based on your state's tax regulations . However, if you're using the Sales Tax Center, you will only see a Shipping charge box which isn't taxable. As a workaround, you can create a taxable service item then apply it to your sales transactions.

 

Here's how:

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Choose Products and Services.
  3. Select the New button.
  4. Pick Service from the Product/Service Information window.
  5. Fill out all the fields.
  6. Mark the Is taxable box.
  7. Click Save and close.

You can now use this item on your invoices or sales receipts.
