Hi there, @Rattleonco.
Glad to have you here in the Community. I'd be happy to help share some information on how you can recreate paychecks in QuickBooks Desktop.
If you've created a backup copy of your company file prior to the deletion of paychecks, then you still have the option to restore it. If not, you'll need to recreate an unscheduled payroll and enter the same information of the paychecks that you've deleted.
To do that:
To get more information about creating paychecks in QuickBooks Desktop, please refer to this article: Create paychecks.
That should do it!
Keep me posted if there's anything else you need about recreating paychecks in QuickBooks. I'm always up for further assistance. Wishing you and your business continued success.
Hello there, @Rattleonco.
Thanks for getting back to us. I'm here to help recreate the deleted paycheck in QuickBooks Desktop.
As mentioned by my colleague, you can restore it if there is a backup of your company file prior to the deletion of the paycheck. Since you have a copy ready you'd just recreate it.
You can refer to this article for the details: Create paychecks in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll.
This information should get you back in line. If there’s anything else you need help with, let me know by leaving a comment. I'm more than happy to assist you. Take care!
Ok I'm confused lol, do I recreate a paycheck in my current year? Because the YTD is not the same, I printed a copy of the pay stub, sorry I'm new at this.
Thanks for your prompt response, @Rattleonco.
Allow me to provide some clarifications with this deleted paychecks concern.
There's no need for you to recreate the paycheck, instead you'll need to enter the information as a YTD adjustment in your QuickBooks. Doing this allows you to record those taxes paid on the deleted paychecks.
To do that:
For more details about creating YTD adjustments in QuickBooks Desktop, please refer to this article: Enter historical payroll data.

Thank you for these answers! They've helped me restore a paycheck I deleted by mistake.
When I finished recreating it, QB is now prompting me to send the info to Intuit. This was a paper check that we issued already and not a direct deposit. We sent the info when we processed the original paycheck.
Do I have to send the info to Intuit, or is there a way to dismiss the request?
If not, am I messing anything up with doubling the amount of taxes withheld for this employee?
Thank you again for your advice!
It's good to know that the steps provided by my colleague assisted you in restoring your deleted paychecks.
As for the Send to Intuit request, there isn't an option to dismiss this. As you mentioned, one of the reasons why this shows up is due to the paychecks being marked as a direct deposit. Another reason is for us to determine the payroll usage fee.
