Tax rates are constantly changing. Whether it's for city, state or county tax, updating your Sales Tax Codes in ESC is fast and easy.
- In ESC, go to Sales Enter Sales Tax Codes.
- Double-click on the Tax Code you need to update.
- Update the rate to the correct percent. If you have a rate that consists of multiple tax authorities, each authority should have a separate line with their own rate. The combined rate will show at the bottom of the screen.
- Click OK and then close the Enter Tax Codes screen.
This rate will not affect invoices that have already been created and saved. If a previously saved invoice needs to reflect the new tax rate, open the invoice, change the Tax Code to a different code and then change it back to the updated code. This will apply the new rate to that invoice.
If you are using a version of ESC prior to 13.00.12, we highly recommend upgrading to a more recent version. Prior to Version 13.00.12, updating a Sales Tax Code in ESC would apply the change to all previously created invoices.
