How to record Sales Tax

I am using a 3rd party App (Davo) to collect and pay my monthly sales tax.  My issue is Davo automatically debits my account daily for any sales tax collected on paid invoices.   So I could potentially have 30 debits a month.  I wanted to code this to Sales Tax,  but that is not an option.  So I code the expense uncategorized expense.   At the end of the month in QBO I go to Tax Center and it shows the amount I owe ( which matches all the individual debits from the last 30 days) .  When I hit record Sales Tax,  it makes an entry in bank account as well.  So now I have double amounts,  how can I use only one or both and code them correctly

Thank you


Hello christian,

Thanks for sharing a point-by-point information about how you record Sales tax in QuickBooks Online. Let's get this sorted out for you. 

Once you record tax payments in the program, you'll get to specify the bank account you're making the pay from. To avoid recording duplicate amounts (from the uncategorized expense and bank), you'd need to correctly map the sales tax collected from the third party app (Davo).

Here are articles that'll explain more about it:

To do so, I'd recommend reaching out to Davo's support specialists. They'll be able to check the setup of the sales tax items, make sure they're coded to the Sales Tax account and help you make necessary changes.

Don't hesitate to let me know if you have additional questions with the process. I'm here anytime.

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.
