Tax Settings - Organization Defaults

Located under the Gear (icon) > Settings > General > Organization Defaults (left menu), Tax Settings are settings for your Tax ID Label and options for taxes on fees and services.

Add a Tax ID Label

Add your organization's tax information to have it included on all receipts and statements issued from Jackrabbit. This information is helpful for your customers who submit receipts for tax purposes and reimbursements.

The Tax ID Label is displayed before the tax ID number on the receipts and statements. Select one of the options in the drop-down list for the type of tax number to enter. Note: Once a Tax ID Label has been selected, the Tax ID Number field becomes a required field.

  • In the United States, the tax number is called the EIN (Employer Identification Number).
  • In Canada, the tax number is called the BN (Business Number).
  • In Australia, New Zealand, and the UK, the tax number is called the TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number).

The tax label information is shown to customers on all of the following: statements, receipts, ePayment receipts, and Parent Portal printed transactions.
