Sales Tax Abbreviation confusion

  • 13 October 2020

I’m new to Zap and working on getting new online orders through Shopify to come through on my bookkeeping software, Wave, correctly. The confusion I am having is what to put in the field “Sales Tax Abbreviation”

I’m assuming “Sales Tax Amount” should be “Total Tax”


So for “Sales Tax Abbreviation” the only one option I see that could possibly be right is “Line Items Tax Lines Title” but this option gives a super long name once populated which is - “Los Angeles County Tax, California State Tax, Santa Monica City Tax”  


This is way to long to be an abbreviation over in my bookkeeping software which only allows 10 characters for an abbreviation. Please help.

This Wave article talks about Abbreviation:

Sounds like it’s a designation you set in Wave.

So you might have to do a lookup or have a lookup table to get the desired value as already designated in Wave.
