Configure your tax rates in QuickBooks Online

MSP Manager integrates with QuickBooks Online by mapping service items and rates to Products and Services in QuickBooks. Taxable service items in MSP Manager must have tax rates assigned to them and be mapped to a taxable Product or Service in QuickBooks.
