Sales Tax Calculations

My Peachtree Complete Accounting 2004 has quit calculating sales taxes. At the same time it will not enter my manual entry into the month end report. It was working fine but just quit. Obviously Peachtree has stopped offering assistance as I did not want to upgrade.

    Reference the Microsoft download that is true. This has been doing this since last year. The mainframe is Windows XP Pro and my computer is VISTA. Both are completely up to date from Microsoft downloads

  • master_train Feb 27, 2009

    There is no "options.dat" file anywhere on our computer including in the Peachtree folder. You lost me when you said launched PTP07. Not familiar with that acronym. Peach tree will run but not calculate the taxes mentioned (sales and FIT)

  • master_train Feb 27, 2009

    We have already done this. Ironically, the 2nd company that we can run will do the sales tax. and the FIT. It is just the one company that is causing the problems.

  • master_train Feb 27, 2009

    Quick books is probably the way to go and I have been thinking seriously about it but right now I cannot afford it. That is why I did not upgrade with Peachtree. I need to get this problem fixed.

  • master_train Feb 27, 2009

    I am beginning to think that Peachtree intentionally put a bug in the program to force you into upgrading. The answers I have gotten from here are unacceptable. I have updated all of the tax structures through the User-maintained portal and evrything is working except these two. Thanks anyway.

Hi there, due to the upgrade situation, most software programs are rendered useless when the required update isn't installed. this is by design. if you can t buy the upgrade, i would suggest using another method. this software seems to be configured to disable this section needed for completion of your calculations. its all by design. you will need that upgrade or it wont work any further.

If you ae using as stated an outdated software for accounting and have refused an upgrade, then the only quick way to make it work again is to run it off-line and roll back the acctual pc date vias your regional settings.

You mentioned that there are two systems, 1 XP and 1 Vista. The XP machine is the "host/server". Do you have that machine setup to also use the Quickbooks or is it just the Vista machine that is used?

To start do a backup of yours Peachtree Complete Accounting 2004 files, so that you do not risk losing your data.

After you saved your backup try uninstalling and re-installing Peachtree Complete Accounting 2004 from original CD.

Sir,
Renamed the options.dat found in c:\program files\peachtree\company directory to options1.dat.
Did a file search to make sure no "options.dat" file existed on my computer.
Launched PTP07 and it popped up a dialog stating Options.dat not found.
Clicked OK and it proceeded to my company.
Quit PT and again it STILL wanted to install Tax Service.


Thanks goodluck

How to set the vat rate


The North American equivalent to Value Added Tax (VAT) would be Provincial Sales Tax (PST), Goods and Services Tax (GST), or Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) in Canada. In the US, it would be state sales tax, as there is no national sales tax, yet;)

What calculator is it for?

Good luck,

I need a formula to calculate sales tax. the tax caps at $300 dollars.


=IF((A1*7.5%) > 300, 300, A1*7.5%)
  • IF Sales Amount * Tax Rate is greate than $300 then make it $300 no matter what the value is.
  • IF Sales Amount * Tax Rate is less than $300 then make it the value of Sales Amount * Tax Rate.

How can I set tax rate for Canon DK 100i?


1. Press the On/CA key.
2. Press the Set (Tax+) key.
3. Key in the tax amount.
4. Press the Set (Tax+) key.

Tax rate should now be set. To use, enter a sales price, press the Tax+ key, and the price with tax will be displayed. Pressing the Tax+ key again will display the amount of tax for that sale.

Programming sales tax


You're right, the manual is terrible but I think I got it worked out...
Turn to PGM mode.
  • Press 3 then subtotal button.
  • Press subtotal button again.
  • Then endter tax rate (if even enter two digits 05 for 5%, if more enter 4 digits like 5.75 *5+.+7+5 for 5.75%) and press ca/amt tend button
  • Press 0 and press ca/amt tend button
  • Press 0125 and press ca/amt tend button *this is for rounding/tax table code not positive on this one but looks like the right entry for "add on" tax
  • Press sub total button
This should change your tax

Federal Income tax


No it has not been corrected. After yesterday's experience with the sales tax not working it finally came out that apparenty Peachtree had installed a bug that would cause the system to fail after a certain age. Your techs from your premium side that attempted to fix it before that notice failed miserably. I know there is a code somewhere inside it that cause the problem but they apparently cannot find it. I believe it is an attempt by Peachtree to force the customer to upgrade which I do not want to do.

NEED TO SET TAX RATE


Solution #1 has it backward..
(tax rate), STR, TAX+ (or TAX-)
Example- San Francisco sales tax = 9.5% you enter 9.5, STR, TAX+.
now it functions as (amount entered) plus tax. Example- find the total with tax for a purchase of $14.99 14.99, TAX+ Calculator will show 16.41
