In Quickbooks, how do I go about charging different tax rates on the same invoice? In Texas, the state hotel tax is 6% and the sales tax is 6.25%. Obviously, for a room rental, we charge the state hotel tax. But now we are adding other services and packages that are subject to the higher rate?
So, I need to be able to charge one rate on rooms and the other rate for any add ons. I can't use a tax group because that would charge 12.25% on the total and I don't want to do that.

We don't think you can - we have always had to create one invoice for the lodging (using the higher tax) and then a separate invoice for the sales package or service.

Yes, thanks, SS! I've been doing separate invoices for 8 years since I never figured that out.
