Change the sales tax rate in QuickBooks for Mac

If your sales tax rate changes, you should change the rate in QuickBooks so you are charging your customers the correct sales tax. Changing the sales tax affects all future transactions. Existing transactions and any outstanding Sales Tax Liabilities are unaffected.

Detailed instructions
  1. Choose List > Items.
  2. In the Items list, find the sales tax item you want to change.
  3. Click Edit (the pencil icon at the bottom of the list).
  4. In the Rate field, change the tax rate. QuickBooks assumes this field is a percentage. For example, entering 8.0 sets the tax rate at 8.0%.
  5. Click OK.

If this solution does not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.
