Thank you for posting in the Community, @lydbrewer.
 

Since QB had you, made journal entries (JE) to reverse the paycheck you wrote from a wrong bank account, reconcile the JE instead of the paychecks.  The paychecks were adjusted using the JE that serves as the correct payroll reflected in QBO. That's why you were unable to reconcile the paychecks.
 

If you have specific questions about your JE, you can reach out to your accountant.
 

For more info about manually entering and tracking accounts in payroll using a journal entry, refer to this article: Manually enter payroll paychecks in QuickBooks Online.

How do I correct it in QB if I wrote the check from the wrong bank account?  The checks are showing in the other bank register but the bank feed brought in the checks.  I am concerned that this will mess up the tax liabilities if I reconcile from the bank feed.

Thanks for joining the conversation, @Ginny4.

 

You can correct the posting account of the check recorded in QuickBooks by opening the transaction. Here's how:

  1. From the Accounting menu, select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Choose the account where the check is incorrectly posted and click View register.
  3. Tap the check and select Edit.
  4. Change the posting account in the Bank Account drop-down.
  5. Hit Save and close.

 

 

 

Right after, match the manually added entry to the downloaded one. Once done, you can start the reconciliation process. See Reconcile an account in QuickBooks Online for reference.

 

Post again in the Community if there's anything else you need. I'm here to keep helping. Have a fantastic day!

Payroll checks don't give you the option to change the bank account like that if you are using full service payroll.

So what do we do with the payroll checks when we make this mistake?

I’ve got you covered, @Lyndi2020.


I'm happy to see you here in the Community. Let me share some information concerning incorrect payroll checks.

 

If you followed the recommendations stated above, let the payroll checks remain in your books as the basis for why you’ve created those corrections within the program. QuickBooks Online needs and keeps this entry to make sure records are accurate and intact.

 

In case you need more tips and information on how to manage your accounts and finances. We have available training videos and webinars to help you understand our product features, functions and benefits of QuickBooks.
