"Tax field cannot be left blank" when importing Invoices or Sales Receipts
When importing Sales Receipts or Invoices, QuickBooks says:
In QuickBooks, the Sales Tax preference is ON, but Statement Converter is not set properly for sales tax.
Option 1: In QB, set the Sales Tax preference OFF. (Edit > Preferences > Sales Tax)
Option 2: In the Statement Converter conversion settings (Convert to QB > View config...), checkmark the setting "Charge Sales Tax" and enter all the sales tax settings. ALSO, in the Statement Converter "system" config file (SC_config_System.txt), add this setting on a line by itself:
If sales tax is included in each transaction total (or there is no sales tax), add this setting:
TOTAL_INCLUDES_TAX = TRUE.
If sales tax is a separate column for each transaction, add this setting:
DISTRIB_ACCOUNT_4_ITEM_NAME = Sales Tax item name here
