Line 106 is not connecting to GST codes when entered through Bills/Cheques/Credit Card. Quickbooks is not separating GST from the expense amount and is recording the total expense in the expense account.
For example, when a cheque is entered for a vendor, it shows the GST being separate and the amounts are correct, but when you look at the transaction journal it shows $0.00 for GST and applies the full amount to the total expense.
Also, under Chart of Accounts, it doesn't show that it is connected to the GST Payable Account for purchases.
As a test, we created new Sales Codes and Sales Items, but had the same issue.
Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks for providing all the details of what you're experiencing with QuickBooks. It's important you get the support you need so you can get back to business ASAP. Don't worry, I'll be happy to assist you with this.
Have you tried to completely exit out of the program and accessing it again? Feel free to share the troubleshooting steps you've covered on your end. If you're still having issues after uninstalling and reinstalling the program make sure you have a backup copy), I recommend calling our phone support team at 877-772-9158. The hours of operation are 24/7 so you can call at your earliest convenience. One of our knowledgeable agents will be able to share your screen to see what's happening.
In the meantime, let me know if you have questions. I'll be happy to steer you in the right direction.
I see that you are not using the GST Codes automatically created by QB. You are using a Tax Code G1 - a code I do not see in the Item List and you did not provide a screenshot of your Sales Tax Code list.
The first thing I would do is check to make sure that the Sales Tax is set up correctly: Open your Sales Tax Code list>doubleclick the Tax Code G1>click the Edit tab beside GST on Purchases. Complete the Rate, the Tax Agency and the appropriate Tax Return Line (106 for Purchases) Then, click the Edit tab beside GST on Sales. Tax Return Line 103 for Sales)
This must be done for Every Tax Code you create and/or use.
The setup should look like the screenshot below.
We either exit out of QB or change company files many times a day and this does not resolve the issue.
The troubleshooting steps we took are detailed in my post along with images which illustrate the issue. Did you review the images I provided?
We already tried calling support and to be blunt; they were useless. All they did was send a generic article to verify the data. They, too, offered to do a screen share but wanted to charge a fee.
No, exiting the program and opening different company files will not solve your issue. Setup is specific to each data file.
Yes, I did see the images. Did you see my image and try the solution provided?
Hi there, @Todd66.
One possible reason why this happens is because of the sale tax settings. For now, please ensure to check your Sales Tax Center and set up the sales tax correctly. You can check on the steps provided by our Community Backer (impossible) above.

Hi there, @VJ AY.
Thank you for providing me a screenshot of your concern. Let me provide some details about this and help you further.
When you choose to track your sales and purchases separately, you'll need to select different accounts.
In addition, when you choose to track your sales and purchases in the same account, all you have to click in the Include this tax when billing for expenses checkbox.
This way, all your sales and purchases are tracked under the same account.
