My company exports outside the US. We are based in Florida. I understand that if I make a sale and provide export proof, that sale is tax exempt. How can I input this?

I buy goods in the US and sell them overseas.  If I have documents that show the export, how can I log this into Quickbooks? 


Every business income and expense that you enter in QuickBooks Self-Employed are automatically included in the calculations for your estimated taxes, exporter.

If you have a transaction that should not be accounted for estimated taxes, then you must enter it as Personal income

To add this, go to your transactions tab and click on this amount and categorize as Personal. I've added a screenshot below for your reference. Here's also an article on how to add a new transaction in QBSE.

That should help you account your income and expenses. See the following articles:

If you have any other questions or would like me to clarify about categorizing your transactions, let me know by laving a comment below. I'm always glad to help in any way I can.​ Have a great rest of the day.

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.
