In quickbooks right now, for the company file, we are recording

This answer was rated:

In quickbooks right now, for the company file, we are recording tax payments as a payments to an account, but now it has a large negative value. What would be the best way in quickbooks to categorize IRS tax payments so that they don't show as expenses but that they do show as payments to reconcile bank account?

And what type of tax payments are deductible? Are state tax payments deductible?

Thanks!

PDtax :

Welcome to the site. I will be helping you today.

PDtax :

Set up the payments as going to an asset account, like Prepaid Federal Income Tax.

PDtax :

The only deductible taxes will be state taxes paid in the year in question (state taxes paid in 2012 are deductible in 2012).
