While running a Sales Tax Liability Report (STLR), you receive this pop-up:
Warning: An improper transaction was found while running this report. Therefore your sales tax report may not show correct numbers.
There may be damaged transactions in the company file.
Intuit recommends more than one solution for this problem. The first solution may solve your problem, or you may need to try all of them to resolve the issue. For best results, perform the solutions in the order shown.
Run the Rebuild Data utility to try to repair the damaged transaction(s).
Look at the QBWIN.LOG to identify damaged transactions to be manually deleted and re-created.
When all damaged transactions have been deleted and re-entered, run the Verify Data utility again to ensure that the file is no longer corrupted.
If the company file contains several corrupted transactions, they must be re-created one at a time. This can be a long process to correct.
