disability payments from insurance to get company taxes into QB

I have an employee on ST disability. Our insurance company pays the disability payment and tskes out the employee's  FICA . How do I get the company portion of FICA and FED Tax into the proper accounts in QB without "paying" the employee who has already been paid by the insurance company?

Thanks for posting in the Community, @ning1.


Let me help share some information about setting up your payroll account preferences in QuickBooks.


Ideally, our system creates default accounts where you can record your payroll liabilities and expenses in QuickBooks. If you're using QuickBooks Online Payroll, you have the option to use different accounts for tracking. You may refer to this article for more information: Set up Payroll account preferences.


However, if you're using Intuit Online Payroll (IOP), you'll need to reach out to our Payroll Specialist to map your FICA and FED tax into the proper accounts. They have the necessary tools to set this up for you.


Here's how you can reach them:


  1. Go to
  2. Select Intuit Online Payroll.
  3. Then click the chat with us link and enter all the necessary details needed.

Please let me know if you have additional questions about your payroll accounting preference. I'm here to help however I can.
