I want to record payment on an invoice that has 3 categories:  Maintenance, Supplies and sales tax.  When I open the invoice and click payment, will the payment automatically be applied to those three categories or must I do something else to make it a split payment?

Yes, it'll be posted to the categories you entered on the bill, walton123.

 

When you create a bill in QuickBooks Online you have the Category details section which you can enter the three categories. There's no need for you to record a bill for each category. Once you pay the bill, the payments will automatically post to these categories. 

 

Let me show you how to record a bill payment: 

 

  1. Open the bill you created and review the categories entered in the Category details section.
  2. At the upper-right, click Mark as paid.
  3. In the Bill Payment screen, select the Bank/Credit account you used to pay the expenses. 
  4. Ensure the bill is selected and review the amount. 
  5. Click Save and close

This goes the same way if you have the QuickBooks Desktop version. For more details, feel free to use these articles:
