Re: How do I enter sales info into quickbooks online to pay state sales tax. I have two streams -...

Glad to have you here in the Community, @user59778.


I've got just the steps you need to enter your sales information and pay your state sales tax.


You'll need to begin by adding the tax rate and the agency.


Here's how:

  1. From QuickBooks Online, navigate to the Taxes tab.
  2. Click Add/edit tax rates and agencies.
  3. Select New and choose either a single or combined tax rate.
  4. Enter a name, the agency you pay, and the rate's percentage. Click Save.

Once done, you can now create sales tax payments by following these steps:

  1. From QuickBooks Online, navigate to the Taxes tab.
  2. Select the agency you're paying under Sales Tax Owed.
  3. Click Record Tax Payment at the bottom.
  4. Fill out the form including a bank account, the payment date, the liability's end date, and the amount.
  5. Select Record Tax Payment if you don't need to print the check, or check off Print a Check and choose Record Payment and Print Check if you do.
