When recording a deposit to a sales tax payable account, it'll show up as payable when going to the Pay Sales Tax window. If it isn't showing up from there, I recommend, selecting the correct date from the Check Date column.
Select Sales Tax from the Vendors tab, then click on the Pay Sales Tax menu.
On the Pay Sales Tax window, adjust the date under CheckDate.
After these steps, you will now be able to locate the sales tax recorded. For additional reference about paying sales tax in QuickBooks Desktop, check out this article.

Thanks, but that solution doesn't get me what I need. It just shows a negative amount from past payments to the vendor. It does not show any of the deposits made since January. I'm at a loss. I'm really not accounting challenged either, so it's driving me crazy! Any other suggestions?
Well, it doesn' show any tax liability to pay. So, I'm wondering if I have the account set up wrong in my chart of accounts. I know it's somthing little and stupid, so appreciate anything else you can think of for me to check.
The most possible reason for this behavior is the wrong details when you record it. You'll want to open the deposit you've made and review it. We have to make sure that the accounts, the dates, and other details are correct.
