How to correct an HST over payment issued by CRA

In error I entered the sales tax collect in the wrong line (line 135 instead of 103) on the CRA netfile.  A refund was due for this period.  CRA issued a cheque but for more than what it should be, not by much but an error regardless.  How do I correct this in QBD.  When I enter payment received it shows over payment leave as credit or issue refund customer.  How do I correct this error?


First, Unfile the return in QB: Locating the Invoice in A/R and Delete it. Now, re-file the return (in QB) correctly. If there is still a difference between the calculated refund and the cheque, use the Receive Payments for the amount calculated on the Return. Deposit this amount to the Undeposited Funds account. Next, use Make Deposits to deposit the amount from Undeposited funds to a bank account. On the second line of the Deposit slip, record the difference (or overpayment amount) as follows: Received from: Receiver General (Customer)>From Account: Uncategorized Income. Complete all other fields as required. Save the Deposit. That should clear it up.

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.
