  2. Under Organization, click Tax Rates.
  3. Click Sales Tax Lookup.
  4. Select the Use sales tax lookup checkbox.
  5. Enter the physical address of your business (if you haven't already added your physical address in Xero).
  6. Enter the states where your business is registered to collect sales tax.
  7. Read and agree to the Terms of Use (xero.com site).
  8. Click Save.
You can also turn the lookup on from the Tax Rate column when you add an invoice.
