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.
