Does Quickbooks Know What's Taxable?

I haven't launched my store yet and I just recently got Quickbooks online.  I'm in the process of setting it up and figuring things out and started to wonder if Quickbooks can tell what sales revenue is taxable and what isn't?  Meaning, come tax time how do I avoid paying sales tax for my total revenue even though only a portion was taxable? Also do people usually split their sales tax reven...

Tax reporting by county - help

Hi,   I'm trying to report to the BOE for Tax by county in California. Is there any way I can get a report from shopify that will do this. All mine seems to do is LA and Orange County and then rest is just CA tax, yet I need all the various cities in their counties. To do this manually is balls aching. If anyone can make this easier please let me know.

Destination Based Taxes Incorrectly Being Used (Changed Feb.2, 2018)

I've been back and forth for 2 weeks now with a Shopify Guru regarding changes made with how taxes are collected on Shopify. In the beginning this Guru told me there were no changes made recently to taxes.  After much back and forth he finally obliged and sent it to "higher ups" to find out if any changes had been made.  He was finally told that beginning Febuary 2, Shopify made changes to t...

Shopify Invoice Calculator

So for the past few months since opening my store, it has been doing pretty well. However, I keep getting hit with massive Shopify invoices that I haven't calculated for. Since Shopify doesn't take the shipping out of your payouts, and doesn't reflect the percentage they take out in your sales overview, is there an app or something that I can get that will help me better anticipate what my Shop...

Intimidated by Taxes

So, taxes worry me. Basically, I don't want to have any problems with the IRS. I know my sales tax nexus is in California. I usually market to just Californians, but if I want to expand nationwide  do I need to set up 50 different tax codes for my Sopify store?

However, I have some questions I think a lot of Europeans new to Shopify would have:   Taxes! Because Germany's threshold for VAT is 100k, would this mean I need not worry about registering for one until I sell that much? Should I just not care about taxes at all (b...

Need help reconciling Shopify Sales reports with 1099-K

 I need to match the 1099-k to Shopfiy sales on Quickbooks. After much searching I discovered the 1099-k matches the amount of the transfers from Shopfiy to our bank, before fees were deducted.  So far, so good. However, when I look at the Finance report for the month, the report indicates a lot more in sales than is on the 1099-k.  The Finance report breaks down the sales channels, ie, Amaz...

Shopify Payments - Access to Payout Data by Finance Users

How are people who are using Shopify Payments handling the fact that only the Store Owner can access Shopify Payouts?  Shopify says this is a security issue but then suggests we share the Owners login with Finance. That's a no.If it was truly a security issue it would be buried in Admin and would be its own permission. It's not sustainable to have the store owner email a report to Finance...
