Add yourself as an employees for Payroll purposes LLC S

How should I go about putting myself on a regular payroll using Intuit for my Payroll service when I am setup as the Sole member in an LLC-S? The way i have Intuit setup it does not like me adding myself as an employee since there is a reference to my name in other parts of the program.

LLC with election to be taxed as S?

Add your name as employee with a period at the end to distinguish from as a customer or vendor.

BTW, if you did not elect S corp taxation paying yourself on payroll is disallowed by the irs.

Yes as you are designated you need to pay yourself a reasonable wage comparable with position and industry standards. And you must, as i understand it, pay this even if your company loses money, and must pay before any dividend distribution to yourself.

Add yourself as an employees for Payroll purposes LLC S

I'm an owner/partner in an S-Corp LLC, and I'm also the quickbooks administrator. I tried this solution, but it will not let me use my work email address (error message is "We already have this email address on file for this company. To try again, enter a different email address.").

 

How are owners' email addresses supposed to go into the payroll system?

 

Thanks!

Not to worry! I'm here to make sure you can your name successfully, cj2d.

 

Adding your name as an employee is achievable by using a different email address. I'll show you how.

 

  1. Open QuickBooks Online and then go to Payroll.
  2. Select Employees, then Add an employee.
  3. Enter the following in the Personal Info section:
    • First and last name
    • Hire date
    • Email address (use a different email)
  4. Enter the info in each section, then select Done.

Please see this article for further guidance with the process: Add a New Employee To Your Payroll.

 

In case you'd like to edit the details detailed,  I'd suggest browsing this article: Change Employee Info in Payroll.

 

I've also added an article that'll help you ensure your payroll is set up correctly: How to Set up Payroll?.

 

Should you need any further assistance getting your info saved, please don't hesitate to comment below. I'll be around to help. Have a good one.
