Direct Deposit Paycheck

I have an employee receiving a manual paycheck but the check is being processed through with the rest of the direct deposit checks.  The box is unclicked for direct deposit in both the employee setup as well as the paycheck itself so I can't figure out why it is running it through.  Any ideas why it is pushing it through direct deposit?

Delighted to have you here, @barbcpa.


I can furnish you with information on how you do QuickBooks handles running regular and direct deposit payroll. 


When running manual and direct deposit payroll, you can process it to together as long as you don’t put a check mark on Use Direct Deposit when previewing the paycheck.


Also, you can set this in your employee’s information window.


Here’s how:

  1. Click the Employees menu.
  2. Select the Employee Center.
  3. Go to the Employees tab.
  4. Double-click on the employee’s name to open the profile.
  5. Choose Payroll Info on the left panel.
  6. Click on the Direct Deposit tab.
  7. In the Direct Deposit window, uncheck the box for Use Direct Deposit
  8. Click OK in the Direct Deposit and Edit Employee windows.

That should do it! This will let you process manual and direct deposit payroll together.
