If you add shipping on a sales receipt, there is a determination you need to make as to whether shipping is taxable or not.

It is a question you would need to ask your CPA or state tax department, but there is a setting for this in QuickBooks Point of Sale 2013.

If you go under Company Preferences, go to Sales Tax, and Edit the Tax Location, there is a checkbox which will allow you to make the shipping taxable.

Here you make the setting for Taxable Shipping, and if the shipping is at a different rate, you can tie it to that rate.
