Hello, Marilynnnjay. I'd like to ensure that your books are always accurate.
With that said, it would be best to consult with your accountant so they can guide you on which account receives the debit and credit side of the transaction. This is to ensure the accuracy of your books.
You can visit our find-an-accountant website to look for certified professionals in your area.
Thank you. I am the bookkeeper for the company and I just needed to know how to record the journal entry on behalf of the customer to take that open balance off their account since they have been paid, but the payments were towards the business taxes.
