New Sales Tax Rate for Proposition 30

With the passing of Proposition 30, there are some changes you will need to make to your Escape Online setup. As of January 1, 2013, the sales tax in California will rise by ¼%.  This means that you will need to change your sales tax setup to ensure that your payments and requisitions include the correct sales tax.

Remember in Escape Online 5, the tax rate applied to payments and requisitions is the sum of the state sales tax rate, the county tax rate and the local tax rate. It is defined in either the Finance-Setup-General-Fiscal activity (shown here) or the Location tab of the System-Setup-Organization activity.

Here is a handy link to check your rates on the California State Board of Equalization web site.
