How do I delete a payroll item?

Hi there, 


Welcome to the Community. QuickBooks is a versatile program that enables you to manage your accounting with peace of mind. I'll be glad to show you how to delete a payroll item. 


Here's how:


1. Go to the Payroll/Employees tab.

2. Select Edit Payroll Items and choose the payroll item you want to delete.

3. Select Edit and then Delete.

4. Confirm that you want to delete the payroll item.


It's important to note that if the payroll item has been used in a paycheque, you won't be able to delete it. Instead, you can make it inactive by selecting Make Inactive instead of Delete.


Give this a try and let me know how you make out. I'll be a message away in case you have questions.
