Multiple Sales Tax Rates on Invoices
Being able to utilize multiple sales tax rates for different customers on one invoice. Currently Quick Books only allow for one sales tax rate per invoice. This is causing problems in accurately capturing the Sales Tax amount in the Sales Tax Center.

This problem seriously prevents me from being able to recommend QBO. We provide software as a service, data processing, and business consulting to our clients. Each one has a different tax rate. Since QBO does not account for the tax rate of a particular product (or allow us to enter it) we have to make manual adjustments to each monthly invoice for each client. This is a roadblock to billing automation and leaves us having to pay a book keeper. It seems like a very common use case, I'm surprised that it has not been addressed.
I'm inferring that since this item was created in 2014, it is unlikely to be addressed. Is that a bad assumption?

Any updates on this? North Carolina (probably other states, too) charges different tax rates on food vs other products.

We need to be able to choose the tax rate per item not on the whole invoice. I have different tax rates for different items. Sending multiple invoices to a customer for the different items is just ridiculous.

Seriously, this is very important. Sales tax needs to be calculated correctly, I can't believe this suggestion was in 2014 and it is almost 2017 and we still don't have the ability to select different rates for different items on 1 invoice. Unbelievable. So disappointed.

Having the ability to invoice using multiple tax options would be incredibly beneficial to our company. For instance, billing our taxable items at 5.5% and our service related items at 6%, per our state regulations. Having to create two invoices to complete this is a waste of time and energy for both our company and our customers!
We need to be able to invoice multiple taxes on a sales invoice.
Eg. In Hawaii there are different counties and therefore different tax rates.
In Phoenix, there are different city and county taxes

I'm surprised sales tax can't be calculated by invoice item and then automatically calculated on the total however when I tried to do it in the tool it's non existent causing me to have to calculate it separately since I'm not confusing my customers by sending them two invoices.

In many states there are different sales tax rates depending on the sales item category. For example rate X for food items and rate Y for all other sales items.
There needs to be a way in quickbooks online to create a single invoice or sales receipt with items from these different tax categories and have the appropriate tax rates applied only to those items.
Currently you can select different tax rates for an entire order but it applies the selected tax rate to all items in that order. It should allow items to have their appropriate tax rate selected when the item is created initially so that when it is added to the invoice the appropriate tax rate is automatically applied.
