Greetings, heyu_ru4real.

I appreciate you checking in with us. I'm here to address your concern with sales tax adjustment in QuickBooks Desktop.

You can only process a sales tax adjustment if any of the following has occurred:

  • You need to write off the sales tax portion of a bad debt. For example: If a customer's cheque bounces, you can write off the bad debt and claim back any sales tax you remitted to the government on the sale. You make the claim by adjusting your sales tax liability. 
  • You can claim provincial compensation or commission. 
  • You need to make an installment payment.

As a reference, you can also check out this article to learn more about processing sales return: Adjust sales tax return.

If none of these apply to you, I recommend reaching out to an accountant for help adjusting your sales tax return.

This should point you in the right direction. Let me know if you have further questions. I'm here to answer them. Have a great weekend.

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.
