I appreciate you for following the steps provided by my colleague on how to enter tax payments made by your accountant. Please know that you're always welcome to post again in QuickBooks Community if you have any other questions. We're always here to help you out.
Wishing you and your business continued success. Have a great day ahead.
All you need to do is Pay Liabilities, viewing the check, and change the Status that it is Not to Send or To Print; put "EFT" for the Check #. You don't need any after the fact payroll or YTD adjustments or "affect Liability" or not. All you need is the Entry as the placeholder to "do the bookkeeping that reflects what happened in real life."
That is a Liability Check, selecting the same tax item(s), payee, amounts, and for the same Date as they paid it outside of the system.
