Why quickbook show my collected sales tax double in the sales tax report, it's like it is counting all my invoice twice? How to fix this?


Hi EchoBambino,

Let me help you with your Sales Tax Report.

If you're referring to the Total Sales amount not matching the Amount total on the sales by item report, this is due to date range and reporting basis.

You need to make sure that the sales report and the Sales Tax Liability Report have the same date range. Also, since the report has a different report basis, businesses that report on the accrual basis, often pay sales tax on the cash basis. 

Here are the charges that may not appear on the Sales Tax Liability report;

  • Finance charges
  • Statement Charges
  • Reimbursed Expenses - (may or may not appear)

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
