Current Taxes

How do we reconcile taxes applied before discounts and charges on past Sales Orders?

Taxes applied before discounts and charges will continue to function as they are. This is meant to avoid causing issues with completed Sales Orders.

Navigate to Settings > Taxes to see the column on the right displays when each tax will be applied.

To apply taxes after discounts and charges on Sales Orders moving forward, simply create a new tax by clicking Add Tax. Before creating a new tax, open the old tax by clicking the pencil icon to the left.

Uncheck any boxes where the old tax should no longer be automatically applied.

New Taxes

All new taxes you create will apply after charges and discounts.

To create a new tax, go to Settings > Customize Distru > Taxes and click Add Tax.

Choose a tax from the list:

Choose Custom Tax to create taxes specific to a city or county or other taxes that may be associated with conducting business in a specific region.

Click Create Tax then fill in the fields on the New Tax Form

  • Specify a name for the tax

  • Fill in a tax code (where applicable)

  • The current rate (%) for the tax

  • A QuickBooks income account

  • Provide a description if desired
