If your store charges multiple tax rates per state, then you should add tax as a line item. The tax will appear as a non-inventory part, similar to how shipping is added, and the order will balance. QuickBooks POS can only handle one tax rate per state.
To set up tax as a line item, follow these steps:
- On the Connex configure page, click the transaction tab.
- Scroll down to sales tax settings.
- Click add tax as line item.
- Click save and sync.
What does the tax look like?
Here is a sample transaction.
Do you recommend any 3rd party services to manage sales tax?
In QuickBooks, go to lists and click item list. Create a new sales tax item called SalesTax. As QuickBooks POS syncs with QuickBooks Desktop, your sales tax payable will increase. We recommend Avalara for sales tax management. They can provide auditors with detailed reporting and accurate tax rates, based on roof top location.
