Hi there, @marshaemw.
If you're referring to reporting payroll taxes without running paychecks, you may need to create a zero net paycheck in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT). I'm here to help guide you how.

First create the paycheck:
Once done, create a deduction item under Other Payroll Items to offset the amount.
