Adjust payroll liabilities

I under withheld social security from an employee's paycheck on the last paycheck of last year. I am trying to figure out how to adjust the accounts so that I can make my liabilities payment and how to withhold the amount from the employee's future check but still have it come out on last years payroll reports (for tax purposes). I have tried using Adjust payroll liabilities which fixes the accounts in Quickbooks but I am unsure how to proceed from there or if that is the correct way to do it. Thank you.

Adjust payroll liabilities

I would not use adjust liabilities to correct this. Instead I would edit the paycheck by 

  1. correct the under withholding
  2. add the difference as Employee Advance
  3. In a future check deduct the repayment of Employee Advance

Otherwise you would have to adjust liabilities a second time in 2019 . Your employer share is affected as well by the under withholding

Adjust payroll liabilities

Thanks.  I was just wanting to make sure it didn't affect our annual taxes when the time came.  I actually got the company withholding right I just missed a number when typing the employee side.
