Collecting Sale Tax

HHEC.com is responsible for collecting sales tax on the products it sells. In addition, it often collects money from customers for goods that are on “backorder.” Unfortunately, Sophia is unfamiliar with how these transactions should be recorded.


Use the list of transactions involving the sale of merchandise and the collection of sales tax and the receipt of money from customers for goods that are on “backorder,” and record them in the general journal. This information can be found in the provided Excel spreadsheet.
Task 7
Sophia is also responsible for accounting for HHEC.com’s payroll. Over the past year, HHEC.com has doubled its workforce. As a result, Sophia wants to make sure that she is deducting the appropriate amount of taxes from the employees’ paychecks and that HHEC.com is paying the correct amount of payroll taxes.

She gives you HHEC.com’s summary payroll data at the end of Year 3 along with payroll tax information (Social Security, Medicare, state unemployment, and federal unemployment). She then asks you to prepare the summary journal entry on December 31 for the full year’s payroll and then make the adjusting entry to record HHEC.com’s payroll taxes.
