Why are Taxable items in POS being mapped to Non Taxable Sales in Desktop?

Inventory items with a Taxable SalesTax Code are included in Non Taxable Sales in Quickbooks Desktop.  Tax is being collected on these items and that shows up in Quickbooks Desktop as well.


Hello there, lynne4smhc,

Let's check the sales tax code calculation so you can map the taxable items to the right account.

The taxable items in POS should also appear as taxable in QB Desktop once they are imported.

Here's how to check:

  1. Go to File, choose Preferences, then select Company.
  2. Select Sales Tax.
  3. Locate the tax code that's in question, then choose Edit Tax Code.
  4. Check information, then click Next.
  5. Make sure that the radio button is under Multi-Rate Tax, select Next.
  6. Select Taxable or the Tax Code that they have in QB Desktop.
  7. Click Finish once done.

I've attached screenshots below for your reference.

If the taxable items were already set as taxable in your POS account, I'd recommend contacting our QuickBooks Point of Sale Support Team. They can check your account using a secure remote access session to properly map your taxable items to QBDT.

Please let me know if you have further concerns about mapping your inventory items to QuickBooks. I'm just around if you need help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
