Hi matlucas,

 

Here are a few possible reasons why your total wages shows doubled in a report:

  • Payroll transactions from the banking page are added instead of matching them. 
  • An Expense transaction was created.

For payroll transactions that were added from the banking section, you can undo them.

 

Here's how:

  1. On the left panel, click Banking.
  2. Click the In QuickBooks tab, and find the payroll transactions.
  3. Put a check mark on payroll transactions and click the Undo button.

Once done, go to the For Review tab. Then, select each payroll transaction and choose Find Match to see if there's a match. If not, then you can exclude them. Please see article: How To Exclude Expenses from Downloaded Bank Transactions.

 

If an expense transaction was created, you can delete them by following these steps:

  1. On the left panel, click Expenses.
  2. Choose Expenses, then click the Filter drop-down list.
  3. Select Expense from the Type drop-down menu.
  4. Choose the Status, Date, and Payee.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. Click the expense to open, and click More located at the bottom.
  7. Select Delete, and click Yes to confirm.

Then, try running the report again to check if your total wages are accurate.
