How do I add Tax only invoices in the Admin Console?

 

Overview

Edit section

You have a tax charge that for some reason you cannot process through your account system, so you want to add the tax amount directly in the Admin Console.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  As this method requires a tax amount override, customers who are participating in the Streamlined Sales Tax (SST) initiative are not able to use this method to perform a tax credit.
