QB Issue Resolution:

I got turned around the axle, lets back up

there is no dummy check

lets say the customer owes $50

he gives you a bill for $50 as a contractor

you use enter bills, select the 1099 mapped expense account and enter $50
on the next line select accounts receivable, enter -50 (negative 50) and in the name column select the customer name

save, that is now a zero $ bill

use receive payments, select the customer the invoice and click apply credits, save

if the bill is for more than he owes, enter that amount and after the negative entry for the invoice he owes you pay the balance
