QB Issue Resolution:

Is the balance on your Trial Balance for last month for Sales tax payable as your sales tax liability report for last month?

I think you did correct everything. The bill entered for Sales tax payable was changed to Opening Balance Equity. That’s how it should be done. Your unpaid bills as of the beginning date should be charged to Opening Balance Equity.
