Set Up the Sale Tax Configuration:

Webgility has three arrangements to assemble sales tax for QuickBooks. We recommend using My Online Store to calculate tax as your sales tax configuration.

Here are the differences between the options to help you determine which sales tax configuration is right for your business. Be sure to ask your Webgility deployment manager what works best for your business.

  • Using the Online Store to calculate tax:

If you use your online store to collect sales tax, it blocks QuickBooks from using its built-in sales tax feature and will show the sales tax as a line item on the certificate. You’ll need to configure a new Tax Location and tax item to record into QuickBooks Point of Sale.

This option should be used if you need to collect a variable tax rate for your state but don’t suppose to collect for other states.

  • Using QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale to calculate tax
    • You don’t anticipate having to gather sales taxes at a special rate than what’s collected in your brick-and-mortar store. If you are doing not hit any threshold for cross-state tax nexus remittance and you’ve got one rate across your state, this is often the simplest option.
    • You’ve built out a tax nexus of Tax Locations in QuickBooks Point of Sale. In this case, you would like a separate Tax Location. When you do that, you would like to map the individual Tax Jurisdictions you care about collecting for remittance and map them (either by state, county or zip code) within Webgility Desktop.
