This article will help you in resolving the sales tax recorded incorrectly in QuickBooks Desktop Accountant and Enterprise.

This generally happens when one of your clients uses a normal check to pay sales tax. You have the option to change all or few of the payments to check your sales tax in one go.

Once you receive the list, you can:

  • Double-click on any of the available transactions.
  • Put a checkmark on any checkbox of the transaction line to choose a transaction.
  • Choose all transactions by simply clicking on Select All
  • Remove the checkmark from the transactions by clicking on Deselect All.

When the required transactions are selected, click on Void & Replace to void the check and create a sales tax check.
