After you review the sales tax payable, you can use the Pay Sales Tax window to write a check to the tax agency (do not use the Write Checks window). To record a sales tax payment, follow these eight steps.This feature works the same in versions 2011–2016 of QuickBooks.
QuickBooks automatically writes checks to the tax agencies selected and records the transactions in the bank account selected. You can print the checks at this time or at a later time. Sales tax totals and amounts due are automatically updated to show that the tax agencies have been paid for the selected tax period.
