How do I record paid property tax on desktop quickbooks?
It depends on how you paid them. If you wrote a check from the business checking account, or the taxes were drawn from that account, then write a check in QuickBooks.
If the taxes are a business expense, then use an expense account for taxes. If not, if they're a personal expense, then use an Equity account on the check as you basically drew money from the business by paying your personal expenses with a business account.
You also might check to see how the taxes have been being recorded in the past, which is probably correct.
