Should I include Shipping and Handling charges in the freight line with the tax code FR020100?

Overview

The freight line currently only include a Shipping charge. You are considering adding a Handling charge to that same item code taxed with FR020100 - Shipping Only common carrier - FOB destination and want to know if you should continue to use the same tax code.

Resolution

  • No. Handling is not included in the "Shipping Only common carrier - FOB destination" tax code description. We recommend choosing a different tax code or separating the Handling charge on a separate line with a different tax code.
