How to pause all Payroll Deductions when a 3rd payroll is issued during a month?

We have two months per year that have 3 biweekly payrolls. Besides garnishments and 401k deductions, we need to have all other deductions and contributions paused during the processing of the 3rd payroll. How can we do that without having to delete the deductions and contributions by each employee profile?

How to pause all Payroll Deductions when a 3rd payroll is issued during a month?

Greetings, @AJaramillo.

Glad you reached out to us today. Let me walk you through the process on how to remove other deductions and contributions when processing the 3rd payroll for your employees.

Since you wish not to add any deductions and contributions during the processing of the 3rd payroll, what you can do is zero out the amounts showing on the boxes. Let me show you how:
1.    Go to Employees and click Run payroll.
2.    On the Run Payroll screen, enter your employee's REGULAR PAY HRS.
3.    Click the pencil icon to view the paycheck details next to the TOTAL PAY amount of the employee, 
4.    Click the Employee deductions arrow to view all deduction types and remove the amount showing on the boxes. Once you do that, the amount will show as zero.
5.    Now, click the Company-paid contributions arrow to view company contributions, and then remove the amount showing on the boxes.
6.    Click the green OK button to save the changes.
7.    Perform the same steps for the rest of your employees.

Once you’re done removing the deductions and contributions on every employee, you may submit your payroll. 

That's it. Please let me know if you have questions. I'll be here to help. Enjoy your day!
