Why is my exemption number not exempting tax in QuickBooks?


I have added an exemption (Resale) number in QuickBooks and it is not removing the sales tax.

  • If you are exempting a customer with a resale exemption number in QB, you also need to set the tax code to NON
  • This is in the same screen as where you enter the resale number
  • You will need the number and the tax code of Non to exempt the customer
    • If you have just one, the customer will not be exempt.
