Creating a Tax Rate

Three things never change in this world: death, taxes, and our passion for cloud-based software solutions. Take care of one of these immutable subjects with the instructions below.

 

Creating a Tax Rate

  1. Log in to Sidewalk Studio using the appropriate URL. Your login information will be the same that you use to log in to Sidewalk Merchant.
  2. Select the location in which you’d like to set a tax rate.
  3. Click on the Accounting tab.
  4. Once that page loads, click on the Tax link.
  5. You can now see the Create/Edit Tax screen. Input information into each of the applicable blank fields (Tax Name, Exemption #, Sale Rate %, and Rent Rate %) and click Save to create your tax rate.
    1. Note that Sale Rate % and Rent Rate % need to be entered as decimal amounts. So if you want to create a sale tax rate of 7.5%, enter 0.075 into the Sale Rate % field.
    2. Note that you can also create a non-taxable or zero tax rate, if applicable. Just enter zeros into the Sale Rate % and Rent Rate % fields.

Editing or Deleting a Tax Rate

  1. Log in to Sidewalk Studio using the appropriate URL. Your login information will be the same that you use to log in to Sidewalk Merchant.
  2. Select the location in which you’d like to set a tax rate.
  3. Click on the Accounting tab.
  4. Once that page loads, click on the Tax tab.
  5. You can now see the Create/Edit Tax screen, including any previously created tax rates.
  6. Click in any of the fields to edit them, and click  at the bottom to save your work.
  7. Click the  button beside any tax rate you wish to delete. Click  to confirm.
