# Enter Sales Tax Codes (STAX.E)
Read Time: 1 minute(s)
The STAX.E procedure is used to define the various sales tax codes which will be used in processing Sales Orders and Accounts Receivable transactions. Each record specifies a description of the code, a definition of local or state tax, a General Ledger account number and a sales tax percent.
Frequency of Use
Sales Tax codes are usually defined when the system is being setup prior to any transaction processing. New codes may be added at any time, but care must be taken when existing codes are changed which are referenced by other records in the system.
The General Ledger account must exist in the GLCHART file.
