Ok here's my example. In the state of PA, we collect 6% sales tax. I send it in to them every month before the 20th. Here's an example using basic figures. Say for the month of April we make $10,000.00. I will send in the $600.00 by May 20th. But by the time the sales tax is due, we have actually only received $5000.00 in payments. That would be $300.00 actually collected/received in sales tax. Is it wrong that I am sending in the full amount even though we haven't gotten all the payments in? How is everyone else doing it? I never gave it any thought until now.
