QB Issue Resolution:

this is intuit messing things up ONLY in QBO

categories in the QBO chart of accounts, are the accounts.

For some ridiculous reason you open the Chart of accounts, click new (for new account), and you create a new category instead of an account

yet when you are done, the new category is listed as an account in the chart of accounts

No one knows what or if they were thinking when they did this
