QB Issue Resolution:

You can decrease your sales tax liability by choosing an income account instead of an expense. Let me add further details about this and help you further.


In the Automated Sales Tax center, you’re only able to enter a positive amount. But you can still decrease your liability by choosing an income account when creating an adjustment.


You can follow the steps below in decreasing your liability:

  1. Click on Taxes from the left panel.
  2. Beside the state, click on View Return.
  3. Choose +Add an adjustment.
  4. Enter the Reason.
  5. Choose an income account under the Account drop-down.
  6. Enter the Amount for the adjustment.
