i paid my 2017 final HST payment as an installment in 2018. the payment shows on my 2018 return, but is also in accounts payable. when i bal. accs. payable it says i owe.

after doing my hst file for 2017,  I then paid the amount due as an instalment in 2018. it shows as an instalment on my 2018 Tax file but it is also in accounts payable . when I try to balance it in accounts payable as paid (since it was) it again shows a balance due in the tax report.   The CRA has their money. this is just a QuickBooks thing I want to fix.  I did upgrade versions. i may have been then but i still want to fix it.

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.
