Hi there, kelly53.

 

I suggest creating a journal entry since QuickBooks won't let you pay the tax other than a bank account. This way, you're able to record the payment using the personal refund to offset the amount. But first, consult your accountant for guidance to which category this transaction goes.

 

Here's how:

 

1. Click the New button at the left panel.

2. Choose Journal Entry.

3. Fill in the necessary fields.

4. Hit Save and close.

 

You may refer to this article on how to record Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) or bounced cheques when you receive NSF cheque from customers using a journal entry to reflect the non-payment: How to enter a bounced cheque using a journal entry.
