QuickBooks Sales Tax Payments Missing from Budget Reports
A reader wrote to complain that her sales tax payments aren't showing up in her P&L Budget Vs. Actual report in QuickBooks. She wanted to know if this is a known bug.
Sales tax is neither income nor expense; it's merely money that passes through your hands on its way to the state. It doesn't belong in a QuickBooks budget. Nor should there be a sales tax Expense account.
