How do I pay a a current liability

Hi there, 0001189379.


Thank you for posting here in the QuickBooks Community.


If you're referring to paying a vendor, you'll need to create a bill then Pay bills.


Here's how to create a bill:


1. At the upper right, click the Plus icon.
2. Under Suppliers, select Bill.
3. Fill in the necessary fields.
4. Save and close.


Once done, you can create bill payment checks. Follow the steps below:


1. Select the Plus icon at the upper right.
2. Choose Pay Bills under Suppliers.
3. Put a check-mark beside the payee's name.
4. Fill in the required information.
5. Click Save.


If you want to pay the payroll liabilities, you can pay them electronically or manually in Online Payroll.


Pay taxes electronically:


1. On the left panel, select Taxes, then Payroll Tax.
2. Select Pay Taxes in the Payroll Tax Center page.
3. Next, to the payment you want to pay, select Create Payment.
4. Select Approve.


Pay taxes manually:


1. From the left menu, select Taxes, then Payroll Tax.
2. On the Payroll Tax Center page, select Pay Taxes.
3. Next, to the payment, you want to pay, select Record Payment.
4. On the approve payment screen, you have two options:

  • Click Record and Print to print a check to mail.
  • Click Record Payment to record the payment - generally when the payment was made outside the system.


You can check this article for the steps on how you can create the payments to pay non-tax liabilities such as Health Insurance premiums, 401(k) contributions, and Child Support: Create a payroll liability check.



I'll be glad to help you if you have any other questions.​ Have a good day!
