Question: employee needs reimbursed for out of pocket training costs. I pay using direct deposit and added the reimbursement as a miscellaneous addition. I need to classify the addition as an expense (training expense) but can't figure out how to do this. Journal entry?
You need to create a specific payroll addition item and point it to a training expense account. If you use a miscellaneous payroll addition item, you need to look at the expense account that it is pointed to and move the amounts to specific expense accounts via a general journal entry.
It's lovely to see you here today, R-keim,

Once done, you can now set the reimbursement's wage expense account in the Preferences section of the Payroll Settings. Let me guide you how to do that:
That should point you in the right direction, R-keim.
