  1. Sales tax report with ALL pertinent categories to pay taxes please!

    I've switched from desktop to online version of QB and I'm noticing there is only 1 sales tax report and it doesn't list Gross Sales, Non-Taxables Sales, and then the result. This makes it very difficult to run a report to pay B&O taxes for taxable, gross sales and non-taxable sales. Why does the desktop version have this and not QBO?

        • Automated Sales Tax Calculation - option to override sales tax RATE

          What do you really do when QBO is not up-to-date and not auto-calculating the sales tax amount correctly?

          QBO users should have the option to override sales tax RATE when the calculation is simply wrong. Currently, it's auto-calculated by QBO, you can override the sales tax amount one-time on Sales form but not sales tax rate and also be able to make it a permanent rate change if needed.

          Also, how about the new direct hotline, just to take care of automated sales tax crisis? That would be very helpful.

          • FIX THE SALES TAX LIABILITY REPORT!!!!!!!!!!

            The Sales Tax Liability report in QBO is a disaster. The report does not even reconcile to the companies P&L. This report MUST include non-taxable sales broken out by tax location. I'm a little stunned that Intuit got this wrong in the design of QBO and to add insult to injury it has not yet been corrected. I sincerely hope Intuit has something in the works to remedy this error and it is being fast tracked through implementation; I do not want to have inform my clients they need to change back to Desktop after already moving them to QBO.

            • validate HST registration

              When paying a Canadian vendor, it's important to know whether the vendor has a valid HST number or not. Some vendors charge HST even when they are not registered to collect it. The CRA has a web site for easy verification of HST numbers here: https://www.businessregistration-inscriptionentreprise.gc.ca/ebci/brom/registry/registryPrompt.do

              The user case is this:

              Small Business Ltd (SBL) engages an independent contractor, who bills monthly for services. When SBL receives the first invoice, the bookkeeper sets up the Vendor, including the name and HST number. They click a button and the system checks the CRA web site and confirms the HST number. If…

                • Sales tax at item level

                  Being able to set a single tax rate for an entire invoice is not going to work for many people. I know that you can define a combined rate but that is not good enough. Not all items are going to be taxed at the same rate. Some items may be subject to state and local taxes while others are subject only to state. Rates should be able to be set at the item level.

                  • Allow us to turn off the automated sales tax calculation.

                    When we have the sales tax to automatically generate, if there is an issue with the address or something is wrong with the entered information, it does not allow it to generate sales tax. It was useful to be able to set the tax rate and not have to worry about it trying to automatically update something... and not working effectively. I like the idea, but it should not completely replate the "Custom" tax field either.

                    • Allow me to edit or change the agency name associated with a sales tax rate

                      I am a ProAdvisor that prepares sales tax returns for my clients. Sometimes they create new sales tax items and assign the wrong agency name. I need to be able to reassign the sales tax rate to the new agency without creating a new sales tax rate.

                          There should be an option to delete unwanted tax codes which are redundant and tax agencies which are created by mistake (ofcourse which are not used for filing)

                            • FIX THE DANG SALES TAX FEATURE!!!!!!

                              FIX THE SALES TAX FEATURE!!!!!!! THE REPORT IS BASICALLY USELESS. IT DOESN'T SHOW GROSS SALES BY LOCATION, ONLY TAXABLE SALES BY LOCATION. HAVE YOU EVER FILED A SALES TAX RETURN? IF YOU HAD, YOU KNOW THAT YOU MUST REPORT ALL SALES NOT JUST THE TAXABLE ONES. It's done right in the desktop version so why can't you get it right in the online version??

                                GST and HST for charities and nonprofits on your online version. it is difficult for charities and nonprofits to account for the various % rebates available from the federal and provincial governments on purchases. It appears your standalone version has this capability although I have not used it.

                                • use tax

                                  There needs to be a better way to customize sales tax reporting per state. My state provides discounts and other changes to totals that create a situation in which my quickbooks estimates never match the sales tax I actually owe.

                                  Also there is no easy way to track use tax that is needed to be paid on purchase. It would be great to be able to check a "pay use tax on this item" box next to an item on a purchase order that would then populate a use tax owed report.

                                  • Editable Tax rates

                                    Please make tax rates and Group taxes editable. For example when setting up the new sales tax rate for Saskatchewan by being able to view an existing tax rate I could use that view to allow me to create a new tax rate but with the same settings. I made a mistake adding a new tax rate and because of that I now can't get rid of it out of my list. Makes it tough to manage the tax rates and wanting to make list easy to read and understand.

                                    • Update HST GST PST QST Tax rates for Meal / Meals restrictions in ITC claims for Canadian Accounts.

                                      Be able to add custom Cdn tax rates to account for only 50% of most GST/HST being allowable for meals and entertainment! H-ME for 50% of the 13% and G-ME for 50% of the 5% to avoid having to calculate the amounts outside of the entry and then bring in adjusted figures. Please!

                                        I need to have the ability to have tax codes in online version the same as it is in desktop and the ablitiy to run a Sales Tax Revenue Report. In TN we have to separate reseller, gov/church, out of state, farm and misc non taxable sales individually and I can't find a way to do that in online version.

                                        Please HELP!
