How do I correct the mapping of the sales tax item to the correct account in the Chart of Accounts?

Have tried all of the suggestions but none work. When I have a day to waste I will try calling to speak directly with a customer service rep who hopefully understand accounting principles.

How do I correct the mapping of the sales tax item to the correct account in the Chart of Accounts?

Hi there, @BethFL.

 

I'm here to share a few info about removing or merging accounts in QuickBooks Online.

 

In QBO, few accounts are set as default accounts for features. Tax (Sales Tax Payables) and undeposited funds are examples of default account that we can't delete or merge in QuickBooks Online.

 

To see more details about the default accounts, you can reference this article: Manage default and special accounts in your chart of accounts. From there, you can learn more details on what accounts to remove by making it inactive or merging in QBO.

 

Also, when you want to reuse the inactive accounts, then you can follow the steps through this article on the Make an account active again section: Delete an account on your chart of accounts in QuickBooks Online.

 

You can also use the  QuickBooks Live Bookkeeping service to ensure that your books are up-to-date, accurate, and ready for tax time. Also, my colleague, MaryJoyD already updated her answer to ensure you get the correct info about removing an account.

 

Let me know if you have other questions in mind. I'm always here to lend you a hand. Take care, BethFL!

Hi @JE2348,

 

I have some information about getting your 1099-NEC corrected. If you're using QuickBooks Desktop, you'll want to make sure you the following completed.

 

However, if you're using QuickBooks Online, you can try accessing your account via a private browser to start with a clean slate. This browsing doesn’t store data and will help the page load without issues from temporary data.

 

Here's how:

 

  • Press Ctrl + Shift + N (Google Chrome).
  • Hold Ctrl + Shift + P (Mozilla Firefox).
  • Press Command + Shift + N (Safari).

 

After that, go back to checking your 1099 form and report again. Also, the Nonemployee compensation option has been removed from 1099-MISC. You'll have to choose Box 1 - Nonemployee Compensation on the new 1099-NEC if you filed your 1099-MISC with only Box 7.

 

If it's working fine, it’s a good idea to clear the cache to start on a clean slate. This process helps the browser to fetch the latest version of the webpage and a faster browsing experience.

 

Here are some articles that'll guide you in preparing your 1099 form:

 

Reach out to me again if you still have questions or concerns with managing your vendor transactions. I'll happy to answer them for you. Take care and have a great day ahead.
