How can I print a check for a sales tax payment recorded in the new sales tax center in QBO?
I recorded the payment in the sales tax center and there was no option to print a check. It shows up in the register of my bank account. So if I print a check, the payment will show twice.
I was advised by a support specialist to create a check manually and then delete it, which seems wrong to me. Or to delete the payment from the sales tax center and record it as a check, which would throw off the sales tax center.
Hello there, @Suzi.
You can print a sales tax check in the new sales tax center and I'd be glad to walk you through the steps.
I've attached screenshots below for your reference.
Once done, I'm confident that you can print the sales tax check after following the steps above.

When recording a sales tax payment in QuickBooks, the system doesn't generate the actual check. There's no option to print it with a check number. Please refer to this article for more information: Manage sales tax payments. You'll need to manually write the check to produce the check number.

So, if I manually write a check, the balance in the sales tax center does not update, which kind of defeats the purpose of using the sales tax center. I was told by a support agent yesterday that the functionality to print a check from the "new" sales tax center is not yet available in QBO.
Thanks for reaching out to us here in the Intuit Community, @Suzi.
While you can't print a check on the sale tax center, you can write a check to print your payment. This way, you'll be able to enter a check number and track your expenses as well in QuickBooks.

I know how to print a check. I just want it to correlate to the balances in the sales tax center and update accordingly. And, as I understand, that functionality is not yet available in QBO.
Thanks for getting back, @Suzi.
I'm here to help share some clarification about using the automated sales tax in QBO.
We don't have the option to correlate the vendor's check created to the due payment in the Sales Tax Center. You can only make the payment through the sales tax center and it will only print the information for the tax agency, payment made, payment date and bank account.
I've tried going to the register, however, there's no way to add a reference number or memo for the sales tax payment. I've attached a screenshot below for my sales tax payment sample.

This is not the correct answer. If you enter and print the check again, in addition to recording it in the tax center, you have now recorded the transaction twice.
