Setting up tax areas

The firm administrator (or staff member with security permission to add and edit firm information) should set up tax areas representing state and local taxes by combining applicable taxing authorities into a single entry. You must set up taxing authorities before tax areas.

To set up a tax area:

  1. Choose Setup > Taxes > Tax Areas.
  2. Click the Add button.
  3. Enter a unique description in the Description field.
  4. In the Taxing Authority information grid, use the drop-down list to choose all appropriate taxing authorities. Enter one per line.

    Note: Rate, Type, and GL Account are read-only fields.

  5. Click Enter to save your changes.
