QB Issue Resolution:
No – there is rarely a reason to post directly to an A/P account, especially with a Journal Entry. It was most likely done erroneously, perhaps attempting to correct a previous error. If you are using the A/P function as it is designed (and it appears that you are) and it is producing the desired results, I would definitely avoid using JE’s to post to an A/P (or any other) account. Doing so will almost certainly cause issues with Sales Tax and possibly with duplicating Bill entry and payment.
