Use the Sales Tax Payable account register to view and edit transactions

When you set up QuickBooks to track sales tax for your business, QuickBooks created a Sales Tax Payable account to track all the sales tax you collect, owe (your liability), and pay, even if you collect sales tax for more than one tax agency. Each time you fill out an invoice, sales receipt, credit memo, or other sales form that includes sales tax, QuickBooks enters the amount as an increase in this account register. When you pay sales tax to a tax agency, QuickBooks enters the amount as a decrease in this account register.

The ending balance shown in the register is what you currently owe the tax agency. If you make sales tax payments to more than one tax agency, and you need a breakdown of what you owe to each tax agency, create a sales tax liability report.
