How to Change Tax Rates in Quickbooks

QuickBooks provides a few ways for changing rates within the software. The method you use depends on the type of item that needs to be changed. You can change the payroll tax rates as well as the billing rates for specific items such as services and discounts. Most item rates, including miscellaneous state taxes, can be changed in QuickBooks' Item List. You must use the Employee Center to change the tax rates for local payroll taxes.
