Hello and welcome aboard to the Community, JRS6061.
I'm here to help with any questions you may have with setting up direct deposit for an employee pre-tax deduction.
Are you on the process of signing up for Direct Deposit in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll? Can you share with me what specific pre-tax deduction you want to set up for an employee's payroll? Any additional information you can add would greatly help me provide the information you need.
If you're still on the process of signing up and activating direct deposit, I'm adding this article for you to follow:
After working with tech support to correctly set up my HSA pre-tax employee contribution Deduction and offsetting Addition accounts to use Direct Deposit from payroll directly to their HSAs, I end up with a payroll liability balance in the offsetting Addition account.
