Hi there, @jane-w-davis-hot.
Yes, you can record the payment from your payroll liabilities in QuickBooks.
If you're using a new payroll account, you can enter tax payments made for prior tax periods. Here's how:
This will be a non-posting transaction. It will not affect the bank register, but it will clear the taxes from showing due and record the deposits.
If you want to access your payroll liabilities from your previous version, you'll have to open your old account. You can't access it in your new version since these are separate company files.
More details about paying your payroll taxes can be found here: Pay and file payroll taxes online.
On the other hand, you can record this transaction as an expense. You can create a payroll expense account and use it as a category when recording the expense.
You can also reach out to your accountant for further guidance when recording the payment. That way, we can ensure that everything is accurate.
Do have any other payroll tasks such as managing your employees or checking out their year-to-date amounts? Choose a topic in this page and look for an article: QuickBooks Online Payroll topic page.
Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you in QuickBooks Online. I'll provide some guides, steps, or solutions to help you out.
