When I enter a Sales Receipt the Sales tax box is showing zero in the sales tax box.
When I look at my sales tax report due – It does show the sales tax due for the total of my sales receipts.
Why does it not show in the Sales Tax Box in the Sales Receipts?
Hi Rusty, great question. It sounds like your sales tax settings might not be set up properly. Go to the Sales Tax Center and make sure that you have marked the box that says all items are taxable (if this is applicable). Also, make sure that your default sales tax rate is pointing to an actual rate and not zero. (I believe QBO automatically has a default tax rate of zero set up).
