QB Issue Resolution:

I will assume this tax refund related to income tax from last year – and that last years accounts are already closed.

If a tax refund was expected, then likely there was a ‘tax receivable’ item already setup somewhere.  It could be in Accounts receivable, or it could be a negative Account payable, or it may be in its own GL account.  If you can find it, then code the refund to that same account.

If the refund was unexpected, most businesses do not reopen and restate the prior years tax expense – instead the refund just gets counted as part of this years income tax expense, as a credit.
