How to add sales tax amount to tax liability

A taxable item was not charged sales tax, so my sales tax liability report is not true to my sales.  Is there a way to add that sales tax amount to the liability report?

How to add sales tax amount to tax liability

@ joe

click pay sales tax on the home page, click adjust, select the sales tax agency (vendor), select a sales tax paid expense account (create it if you need to first), click increase, enter the amount of the sales tax you should have collected, save

when it comes time to pay sales tax, insure you check mark both the normal sales tax due and the adjustment amount and then pay all tax

issue a credit memo without sales tax and then create a new invoice with the sales tax.

If so  then that would work, but I did not get that from the OP question
and since I would never ask a customer to pay for my mistake, my inference was that I would eat that amount
