Prior period tax adjustments

I work with an inventory program that syncs/writes to QuickBooks.  Recently due to a glich many customer invoices dating back to 2015-2017 were deleted/recreated during a synchronization.  It is impossible to 'undo'.  Unfortunately, the sales tax rates for some of these invoices have changed since then.  When the invoices were recreated with the old dates, QB used the current sales tax rate for those customers, thus creating a tax overcharge.  Any suggestions on the best way to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Prior period tax adjustments

Restore from back up, then find out why the software thinks it needs to rewrite history - very odd


If you have or if you create a sales tax item with the old rate, about the only thing you could do is open each affected sale and change the sales tax code so it is correct.
