QB is not calculating sales tax payable correctly

I ran my sales tax liability report.  I entered the taxable sales into my state's system and the sales tax payable does not match the report.  QB is inflating the number.  My total taxable sales were $39,218 with a tax rate of 8.25%.  QB is showing that the payable is $3,311.  The correct payable should be $3,235.  I checked all of the sales and I checked the sales tax percentage, and they are correct.  How do I get QB to calculate it correctly?

It did not help me, my difference is only 0.09ct but mathematically QB does not calculate 3.5% off the amount right. Any thoughts on that?
