sales taxes totals



I'm trying to find where in quick books-reports I can find TOTAL sales tax paid (all 4 quarters) for year 2019. I'm looking at two reports Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet reports. On the balance sheet I see under "other current liabilities" - sales tax payable but the number totaled does not match what I paid for all 4 quarter for year 2019. Can some help me located this information or knows why the $ amount sales tax payable doesn't match what I paid it seems what it shows $ on the total sales tax payable is what I paid for one quarter.

If the Sales Tax Liability Report and the Sales Tax window show different tax amounts, they may not have the same date ranges or report basis. You can perform some of the recommended steps provided in this article to fix the issue: Fix Sales Tax Payable issue.


Let me also share some helpful links that you can use in the future.
