I am submitting my GST and the sales tax report generated through QB shows incorrect sales and other revenue amount. When I review invoices, sales report summaries and profit and loss statements the income shows correctly. How do I fix this?
The GST report calculates sales and other revenue a bit differently from the Profit and Loss and sales reports. If a transaction is marked Out of Scope of tax, it will not be included in line 101 on your return.
Here's how you can see which transactions are included in your GST report:
You can compare this detail report to your income reports to see which transactions are causing the difference.
Another tool that can help out here is the Transactions without sales tax report. To access it:
This will show you all transactions for the time period that either don't have a sales tax code or are marked Out of Scope.

I have the same problem as OP. My sales and revenues showing on the tax filing report are 6,000 - however my total sales and revenues for that period is 512,854. The 6000 is in CAD and the rest is in USD and therefore Out of Scope amounts.
Which of the 2 amounts should I report on line 101 of my GST report?
I have the same problem as OP. In my case, the difference between the sales tax center and the gross income on the Income Statement is due to a couple of refunds that were issued to the customer. Why does the sales tax center remove customer refunds from the income reported on Line 101? Is this the correct treatment of a customer refund; that it does not have to be reported on line 101 at all? On the Income Statement I am showing the full amount of the sale and then the refund coming off in a Cost of Goods Sold account. How should I get the sales tax center to match the Income Statement?
You’ll want to check the way you processed the refund, RashmiS.
Refunds shouldn't be included since you returned the money. Although, it will only affect the amount in Line 101 if you assigned a tax to it. You can also reach out directly to your accountant to guide you with filing the return.
The Sales Tax Center and Income Statement can’t be matched. The Sales Tax Center only track the sales tax liabilities. On the other hand, the Income Statement is used to calculate profits by comparing revenue to expenses.
You can pull up the Taxable Sales Summary report. This will serve as your guide regarding sales taxes.
