PAY SALES TAX feature in Quickbooks Desktop only Shows one state

This is regarding paying sales tax to more than one state.  I have always collected and paid sales tax in only one state/jurisdiction.  I have just added a second sales tax ITEM for another state, but when I go to "Pay Sales Tax" under VENDORS>SALES TAX>PAY SALES TAX in QuickBooks Desktop 2019 I only see the original item (state) listed. How do I get the new sales tax item (state) to appear in the Pay Sales Tax list so I can pay that sales tax to the second state separately?
Thank you in advance!

Thank you for posting your concern here in the QuickBooks Community, @dupree1.

 

Once you create another sales tax item, you have to make sure that it is selected and chosen a taxable tax code when creating a transaction. This way, it would reflect in the Pay Sales Tax list.

 

If you already did this and still unable to see the sales tax item from the list, filter the date to when you created the transaction. This way, it will automatically reflect on the list. Just check the screenshot below as your reference.

I've also included these articles that will help you complete other sales tax-related tasks in QuickBooks:

 

 

Let me know if you need further assistance with this. I'm always around to provide answers and clarifications to your questions. Have a great day ahead and take care.

Thank you for the reply and the information.  I realized that since QuickBooks is setup for cash accrual and I hadn't received payment on a particular invoice with that sales tax, it didn't show up in the Pay Sale Tax  window.  Once I processed the payment, it appeared.  Thanks again.

I appreciate you following up with the Community, dupree1.
 

I'm joyful to hear that ReymondO's information was helpful in getting your new sales tax item to appear in the Pay Sales Tax window.
 

I've included a couple detailed articles about working with sales taxes that may come in handy moving forward:
