QB Issue Resolution:

I think I found my own answer….
“sales tax that you collect from your customers is not considered an expense of your business and sales tax should not be listed as an expense item on your profit and loss report”

from: http://blog.betterbottomline.com/scott_gregory_quickbooks/2008/08/sales-tax-is-no.html

is this correct?
