Hi Rahulnz, 

Great to see you here in the Community.

Please make sure to select the Purchases box when adding tax rates. However, if you have already added one, let's create a dummy tax rate to trigger the tax codes to show on the column. 

Here's how:

  1. Click Taxes on the left menu.
  2. Click the Add tax button on the upper-right of your screen.
  3. Click Tax rate.
  4. Fill in the necessary information. Make sure to place a check mark beside the Purchases box. 
  5. Click Save
Once done, create an expense transaction to see if tax codes show up under the Tax column. 

Let me know if you need anything else. I'd be happy to help you.

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.
