  5. If you sell items with taxability variations throughout the US, add a default Tax Information Code (TIC). Otherwise, add 0 for all fully taxable items. You’ll be able to add more TICs later.
  6. After you’ve saved the new Store, you can link it to your QuickBooks Online account by clicking Link Store.

  7. After you’ve entered your QuickBooks Online credentials, you’ll need to approve TaxCloud’s access to your QuickBooks Online account data by selecting Connect. TaxCloud will automatically extract the transactions at month’s end and recalculate sales tax to accurately file and remit the sales tax returns previously scheduled within TaxCloud.

  8. Once QuickBooks is linked with TaxCloud, the “link account” button is hidden. Select Get Details on the Store to view more settings. Here you can turn off auto imports, manually import data outside of the automation schedule, or edit the store name and default TIC.
