Question: I am starting out as an ad specialty distributor. Is it better to set up my books on a cash or accrual basis for tax purposes?

No; currently, QuickBooks Premier is a desktop software and not a subscription service. That means that when you buy the software, you own it.
QuickBooks supports its desktop software, such as Premier, for three years. QuickBooks Premier 2012, for instance, is supported until May 31, 2015. During this time period, you can expect to receive automatic updates and fixes, as well as support and access to any integrated add-on services.

Yes, QuickBooks allows you to set up each portion of sales taxes separately as a sales tax item and then as a group sales tax. For instance, in North Carolina we must collect sales tax for state, county and transit taxes.
