This is a problem that is not easily remedied via software updates. Keeping track of all the tax rates for cities, counties, and states in the US would be a nightmare. Have you checked with your account on how to deal with this?

@ Tris - Exactly my point.  It is my view that it is NOT feasible to MAINTAIN Account Codes within the TurboCash accounting software for each and every geographical tax rate, which can change with each legislative cycle.  In my view, it would be better to have a Menu of the various tax RATES only, and make each User of TurboCash select the correct rate for his or her business, based on the guidance published by the tax authority.  Keeping track of all the tax rates for the State of California is a simple as looking at the California State Board of Equalization web-page which contains all of that data, and not a "nightmare", as your Comment (above) connotes.  I think we are in agreement...  (?)

The Tax authorities may impose changes in the VAT (GST/Sales tax) rates. For example, in South Africa, the South African Revenue Services (SARS), changed the VAT rate from 14% to 15% on 1 April 2018.

I have a farm in Africa

Posted by Philip Copeman on April 21, 2018 at 19:27 0 Comments

... and then they want to take the land back without compensation? The idea is preposterous.
Land only has value if you can keep another African off it. Land only has value if you have complete tenure, right down to the freedom to dispose of the asset.
Naive attempts to directly tax the ownership of Land…
