You can set a preference so that a specific checking account appears as the preset checking account in the Pay Sales Tax window. This is useful if you always make your sales tax payments from the same checking account. If you do not set this preference, QuickBooks uses the most recently used account.
To do this task
Open the checking preferences.
Click the My Preferences tab.
In the Select Default Accounts to Use section, make sure the Open the Pay Sales Tax checkbox is checked.
Click the account drop-down arrow for that preference and choose the checking account you want to use.
Click the OK button.
