Quite a few questions bundled in one.

lets start off with the 1st one for now.

Exactly how you set up your banks is how you setup your petty cash.

Go to Chart of Accounts --> New Account --> Bank --> Name it "Petty Cash"

At the end of the year if you want, you can make a journal entry to Zero it out agains Owners equity, but you only really need to do that if you are a Corporation, NOT MANDATORY

First off to deduct vehicle insurance, it must be a 100% company vehicle car, not personal.

In any case, it is the same like all expenses

You can either write a check or pay by credit card.

You simply create a new expense account for it call "Auto Insurance"

We dont have videos on payroll yet. But hopefully soon, we should have some.
I'm trying to record the daily sales data for a restaurant that wants to capture sales in various categories, such as food, liquor, beer, employee meals, over/short, discounts, etc as well as sales taxes collected that need to be forwarded to the state at the end of the month. I receive the data from the cash register receipts at the end of each day and perform a daily sales report. Credit cards are batched and electronically sent by credit card company to the bank and the cash is deposited separately on a daily basis. I want to be able to reconcile the daily deposits with the bank statement at the end of the month. I also want to verify the monthly sales taxes collected to verify what is due to the state at the end of the month. Per Quickbooks, I understand the sales data should be entered on a sales receipts but haven' t figured out how to create it. Do I make a template for daily sales revenue or what would you suggest?

What you can do is an "Invoice" for that restaurant for daily sales.

In there you can separate the categories through line items.
At the bottom will show the totals including tax collected.

Then you receive 2 payments.
One is for Credit Cards for that amount
The other is for Cash.

That should do the trick

How can I choose the correct category for expenses, for exporting to Turbo Tax

Don't really understand the question. Can you please clarify a bit more.
