How can I stop transactions from calculating tax in QuickBooks?

Overview

How can I stop transactions from calculating tax in QuickBooks?

Environment

QuickBooks

Resolution

There are 3 ways to stop transactions from calculating taxes:

1. Disable calculations for certain types of invoices

  • File -> AvaTax -> Configuration
    • Tax Calculation tab -> Check off types of transaction you would like to disable calculations for

2. Disable automatic calculations

  • File -> AvaTax -> Configuration
    • Tax Calculation tab -> Disable dialog windows [memorized transactions]
    • This will enable batch processing which have tax calculated by going to File -> AvaTax -> view unresolved sales tax errors rather than saving transactions

3. Change the tax area on the invoice away from AvaTax while it's still in process and it will not use AvaTax.
