Step 1. Click on the Options Page and choose the Tax Region Tab. The first sales tax region is your default region and will be yellow. The default tax region is the region each new customer will be placed in unless you choose otherwise.

Step 2. To add a new region click the New button. A Tax Region Setup window will appear. Enter a Tax Region Description and set your Primary Service & Material Tax Rates. Only use the Secondary Tax area if needed. Such as if you live in Canada or need to collect a county tax as well.

I'm in Texas and the way the taxes work down here, a customer belongs to multiple tax regions: one for the state, one for the city and one for the county (sometimes more). In San Marcos, for example, the customer pays 6.25% to Texas, 1.5% to San Marcos, and (get this) .5% to Hays county OR .5% to Caldwell county. I have set up all of these tax regions, but I can only assign one to each customer. Is there another way to do this, or will I need to set them up as Hays Unincorporated - 6.75%, San Marcos/Hays - 8.25%, San Marcos/Caldwell 8.25%, etc in order to track them properly?

Also, I assumed that since I could post a reply to an instructional thread, it was OK to do so. If not, let me know. Thanks.

Yes I think that will be the easiest way.
