Reminder: State of Utah Sales Tax

Postby maethows » Mon Oct 25, 2010 7:15 am

REMEMBER: The line for sales tax on the Expense screen is gone. There is a new category called something like "Reimbursed Sales Tax: State of Utah" that you should use in addition to your budget/other category -- much like splitting an expense across multiple budgets/categories in times past.

I believe this was covered in one of the CUBS implementation FAQs, but a few people I have spoken with seemed to be unaware of this change -- so the FAQ was probably overlooked or buried in other stuff.

I am a stake clerk and have stake boundaries which include Utah but only for 2 of the wards and a branch. The rest are in Wyoming. Will the sales tax feature remain on the those individual ward/branch computers?

EDIT (Alan Brown): Isolated sales tax question from original post and moved to relevant thread.

Each unit has a setting (that you have no access to -- it is set by CHQ) that says what sales tax special handling it has. But it's easy to find out what the setting is; if you have a category called something like "Reimbursed Expenses: Utah Sales Tax" then you have the setting; if you don't, you don't.

So I would check for the presence of that category, and call Local Unit Support if it's not there for the units that need it.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

The official name is "Reimbursed Expenses:Utah Sales Tax".

The official statement says:
For those units that are required to record sales tax with each disbursement, this will no longer be recorded in a Tax field on the Expense screen. Instead, the amount of the expense will be split between the expense and the tax on the expense. Both will be entered under the "Category" and "Amount" columns. For units in Utah and North Carolina, the entire amount of the tax will be left in the unit's account. Only the amount of the expense will be deducted from the account. For units in Canada, half of the amount of the tax will be left in the unit's account. The other half of the tax amount plus the expense will be deducted from the account.

Not overly detailed, I know. You do have to know the field is there (near the bottom of the list of categories).
