Re: How do I clear a Payroll Liability amount in the Payroll Center?

Hi there, @Kathi Calhoun.

 

Thanks for posting in the Community. Let me help remove the amount of overdue payroll liabilities in the Payroll Center.

 

 

On your QuickBooks account, go to Help menu and select About QuickBooks on the bottom part. Then press Ctrl + Alt + Y to open the Setup YTD Amount Window.

 

 

 

Select Next tab four times, then click Create Payments on the Enter prior payments window.

 

 

 

Select the Payment Date and For Period Ending dates. Then, choose the tax or liability from Item Name drop-down and enter the amount (the one showing red in your pay liabilities section of the payroll center). Once done, click the Accounts Affected tab and choose Do not affect accounts.

 

 

 

 

Then click OK and Done then Finish.

 

That should do it. This will remove your overdue payroll liabilities in the Payroll Center window. 

 

Feel free to drop by again if you have other questions about your payroll liabilities. I'm here to help.
