Thank you for reaching out to the Community. I'd be glad to lend a hand with the payroll information downloading in QuickBooks Online.
Please make sure to select the correct payroll account through the Preferences section to ensure it'll post correctly on the register. Any payroll you create will reflect on the chosen bank account.
Please see this screenshot for your visual guide:
After making sure the settings are correct, I recommend matching the payroll transactions from your Bank Feeds. In case you need the steps on matching them, I'm attaching the article for your future reference:

Thx, I did all that you recommended. The problem is when I run payroll, it downloads into the correct checking account for matching, but it also shows up in another checking account. The other checking account was the initial one used when signing up for payroll. I have attached a file. The TD account is the correct account. I don't know if I can go into the other account and start deleting transactions since they will not reconcile. I also don't want this to continue. Please advise
Thanks for joining the Community, @btulskie.
I'm here to help clarify a few things about the accounting preferences for your payroll.
Based on the screenshots provided, these are not duplicate accounts. When editing your accounting preferences, all past transactions on the account can be changed except for the Bank Account section. This is why the previous paychecks were still in the other account.
To correct this, you have to make a journal entry and transfer this to the correct bank account. However before doing that, please consult your accountant so that everything is posted correctly.
This should get you pointed in the right direction. For other related articles, you can check the following links below.
