Expenses, Bills and Bill items
Normally there is no need to specify the
manual_sales_tax_amountfor an expense, bill or bill item yourself. If you leave both of these fields out, the correct
sales_tax_ratewill be set for the category of the expense or bill.
However, we’re finding, with the “new” BILL endpoint, if neither 'sales_tax_rate" nor ‘manual_sales_tax_amount’ are specified, then ZERO sales tax is applied, not the rate/value appropriate for the item’s category. This behaviour is similiar to how Invoices work now.
Is this intentional (suggesting the Sales Tax info page needs an update too)? Or we might be doing it wrong… :-/
