Help needed: There is already a tax payment for this period. Before you can make any more payments for this period, either delete the one already submitted or contact us.

I'm here to help you get rid of the error, noreen-merchant. 

 

The message prompts when we create payments that has been recorded. Let's check the View tax payments you have made page to review if there were existing ones. From there, we can either delete it and recreate the correct one or leave it as is. I suggest looking into the correct tax period and type to avoid duplicates and errors. 

 

Let me show you how to view the payments made:

  1. Go to Taxes from the left menu and click Payroll Tax
  2. In the You may also want to section, click View tax payments you have made
  3. Select the Date Range
  4. Click on the tax payment to review and manage it. 

I have articles that you might want to check for more details on how to handle tax payments and filing. 

I'll be glad to hear back from you if you need anything else. Keep safe!

Thank you. I want to leave the original payment that was made (and cleared by the bank). However, I am making an additional payment for the period since more money was due to the State Dept of Unemployment Security. I have already made the payment directly to the taxing authority and it has cleared the bank. However, the issue is how do I "match" it so it is entered correctly in QB?

Thank you. The original payment was made and cleared by the bank for the period. However, I needed to make an additional payment that was due to the State Dept of Unemployment Security for the same period. I made the payment directly to the taxing authority and it has cleared the bank. Now how do I "match" the cleared payment in QB so it is applied to the right account and period?

It's good to see you again, @noreen-merchant.

 

You can manually record the tax payment made directly to the taxing authority in your QuickBooks Online account, here's how:

  1. Click Taxes in the left menu and go to the Payroll Taxes tab.
  2. Select the Enter Prior Tax History link.
  3. Choose Add Payment.
  4. Pick the tax type and liability period.
  5. Enter the payment dateamount, and check number or any notes if you'd like.
  6. Hit OK when you're finished.

For more information about this process, you can refer to this article: Recording prior tax payments.
