Check and correct tax line assignments

The accuracy of the tax summary report depends on whether each tax-related account has the right tax line assignment. Example

To do this task

  1. Go to the Reports menu, choose Accountant & Taxes, and then click Income Tax Summary. Shortcut

  2. Make sure the date range is for the tax period you want.

  3. At the end of the report, double-click the amount for Tax line unassigned (income/expense).

    The amount is the total of all distributions to an income or expense account without a tax line assignment.

  4. In the report that appears, check for transactions that should be included in the totals you report to the IRS. When you find a transaction, note the name of the account.

  5. Assign the appropriate tax line to each account you found:

    • In your chart of accounts, select the account Shortcut.

    • Click Edit Account.

    • Click the Type drop-down list and choose the tax line.
