Tax payments for unemployment are counted twice, once as type Tax Payment, once as type Expense when added from bank feed. How do I match or reconcile?

The amount paid when I complete electronically with same inputs is slightly different than what QBO calculates.  But when I try to match, the tax payment doesn't show up as available for matching, presumably because it is a liability not a bill.

I don't e-pay from QBO - I complete the form, record the payment, then it comes back in through the bank feed.  I have attempted several times for a year to get the e-Pay for my state and it stays in pending approval status with QBO forever, so I gave up.  No issues with federal because it is e-Pay and matches fine.

Hello, tory-brogan.

 

The following are the possible reasons why the tax payments are not showing up when matching:

  • Incorrect date range (try to double check the covered date in your matching page).
  • Payment transaction have already been cleared or reconciled (You can check this by going into your register and check if the payment transaction was marked C for cleared or R for reconciled).

reviewed both of these and I don't get these options for the tax payment recorded.  I do have a match page in the expense and the date range is fine.  I am still not able to fix this.

You can't match a liability to an expense transaction, tory-brogan.

 

You'll need to pay the amount in QuickBooks manually. Then, match it. For example, go to your Payroll Tax Center page, and click on Pay Taxes. Select the tax liability and click on Record payment,

 

Go back to the Banking page and click on the expense transaction. Try to click on Find match and you'll see the list of expenses/bills associated to it. Once done, select the tax payment and click on Save.

 

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
