Don’t you love when owners do things like this?  You should record the paycheck as normal.  Make a not that the employer withdrew cash in lieu of the check.  Clear it like a check.  put cash in the check # place.

also, if you create a paycheck it will automatically deduct taxes. To stop this from happening for this one time pay, edit the Employee details  Withholdings and mark as Do Not withhold.

Be sure to change this back to what it was for the next paycheck.

Do we do anything differently than the above mentioned if we already deducted taxes from the cash paid to the employee?

Hi there, @Kfasthoff.

 

I'm glad to see you joining the thread. Allow me to help share some insights about recording the cash paid to your employee with deducted taxes.

 

You don't have to change anything. The paycheck will automatically deduct the taxes so there's no need to change anything on your employee's details. Just ensure that the deducted taxes from the cash paid to your employee is the same as the taxes deducted in the system.

 

Let me know if you have other questions about recording the paycheck. I'd be glad to help you however I can.
