QB Issue Resolution:

Creating an invoice for sales tax is currently unavailable at this time. However, you can edit the transactions within QuickBooks Desktop and manually add the sales tax.


Here’s how:


  1. Click the Customers tab at the top menu bar.
  2. Click Customer Center.
  3. Go to the Customers & Jobs tab.
  4. Choose a customer.
  5. Double-click the invoice.
  6. Add the sales tax.
  7. Click Save & Close.

I’m adding a screenshot below for your visual reference:



If your customer already paid the invoices with no sales tax on it, the process will be different. You may need to make a deposit and create a separate clearing account for the payment.


It would be best to seek expert advice from an accountant to ensure your books will be correct and will not have problems in the future.
