Most tax practitioners usually prefer to keep a separate account for client tax payments and separate account for their professional fees.... The tax payment done on behalf of the client and later reimbursed goes in a separate bank account and fees in a separate bank account... By doing this, they can easily explain to the tax officials what portion is reimbursement of tax and what portion is income...
