Compute sales tax and discounts—how it works

QuickBooks Online helps you compute sales tax and discounts on invoices. You control the amount of sales tax you charge your customers on sales transaction forms. You can mark individual charges as taxable, and you can have QuickBooks Online compute the total sales tax on invoices, sales receipts, refund receipts, and credit memos.

Control How Taxes are Calculated

If you enter discounts and sales tax on the same sales transaction form, you can control whether sales tax is charged before or after subtracting the discount.

As you collect sales tax from customers, you can create reports to help figure how much sales tax you should pay the appropriate tax agencies.
