Setting QuickBooks Tax Rates in Mothernode

When syncing transaction records to QuickBooks you’re going to need to make sure the correct tax rate is set up in QBO or QBD before sending. You can either add new rates within the Mothernode CRM transaction, which will add the tax rate code to your QuickBooks account or modify your QuickBooks tax rates in QBO or QBD.

The QuickBooks tax rate code is separate from the standard tax rate field used throughout Mothernode to calculate tax within line items. The QuickBooks Tax Rate Code is used exclusively for QBD and QBO transactions synced to Mothernode CRM. Click here for more information on QBO and QBD tax codes.

Your existing QBO and QBD tax codes are displayed in the QuickBooks API section of your Mothernode CRM account once you successfully connect your QuickBooks account and perform your first sync.


With Mothernode CRM Connected to your QBO and QBD account, users will also have access to this information in the Quotes, Invoices and Purchase Order headers because these are the 3 transactions that can be synced with your QuickBooks account.
