I entered my 2018 Sales tax through the Pay Sales Tax feature. I now need to enter my payment for my 2019 Sales tax. It shows my bank, check date, Show sales tax through and the starting check #. I cannot enter anything else on the Pay, Item, Vendor , etc line. Can anyone give me some advice?
QuickBooks automatically charges and calculates sales tax when you create invoices, sales receipts, and other sales forms. The information displayed in the Pay Sales Tax window is pulled from the transactions mentioned above.
In regard to your 2019 taxes, make sure all transactions associated with that period are recorded in QuickBooks. This way, they'll show up as payables in the Pay Sales Tax window.
However, if you've already entered them and the list shows as empty, I suggest you review the Sales Tax Settings and make sure it’s set up correctly. Check out the Setup sales tax in QuickBooks Desktop article to configure it.
