Use Zero Dollar Transactions to Upload Sales/Payroll Tax Confirmations in QuickBooks Online

One of my favorite things about QuickBooks Online is the ability to attach documents to transactions, customers & vendors. It’s a great way to keep track of receipts, engagement letters, and W9s. However, there’s a limitation to this: users are not able to attach documents to sales tax transactions or payroll tax payments, made outside of QuickBooks Online Payroll epayments and efilings. I have a simple work around that allows me to attach efile and epay confirmations, and at the the same time, make it easy to find these transactions via a QBO search.

StacyK’s Step by Step: Post QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online Conversion Sales Tax Clean Up

After conversion you’ll most likely see multiple sales tax payable accounts on the Chart of Accounts in QuickBooks Online. There will be one account in QuickBooks Online for each Sales Tax Payable account you had in desktop. In addition, QuickBooks Online, by default, will create a Sales Tax Agency Payable account for each sales tax jurisdiction the desktop file had. To clean this up, you’ll need to make the accounts that came from desktop inactive (delete them) and use the new accounts in QuickBooks Online to track sales tax – make sure you make the proper adjustments to zero out the balances in these accounts
