I'm glad you reached out to us, paula15.

 

It's my pleasure to help correct your liability payments that are showing as unpaid in QuickBooks Online (QBO).

 

Payroll liabilities that were paid using the Write Checks feature can be resolve by entering prior tax history in QBO. I'd be glad to share with you the steps on how to enter prior tax history:

  1. Click the Taxes tab from the left panel.
  2. Select Payroll Tax.
  3. Under Pay Taxes, click Enter prior tax history.
  4. Click Add payment.
  5. From the Create Prior Tax Payment window, fill in the necessary information.
  6. Click OK.

Just in case you enter an incorrect amount, you have the option to edit it. You can follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Go to Taxes from the left panel, and then select Payroll Tax.
  2. Click View Tax Payments you have made.
  3. Select the tax item.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Make the necessary changes, and then click OK.

Feel free to read through this article on how to record prior tax payments in QBO.

 

You may also want to run the Payroll Tax Liability report to know if there are other taxes that needs to be paid.

 

That information should get you on the right path. Let me know if you have additional questions about payroll. I'd be glad to help you more.
