I overpaid our 4Q2016 payroll taxes. The 941 was submitted with the correct amount and that the refund would be applied to the next payment. How do I do that?
I paid the Dec 2016 payroll taxes, and the next day, I discovered an employee's paycheck was dated for 12/31/16 and it needed to be 1/1/2017. When I corrected, this resulted in an overpayment of our payroll taxes. The 4Q2016 941 I filed showed this overpayment ($201) and I asked that it be applied to the next return. I don't know how to adjust the next payroll taxes to be paid for this overage. I had to pay the January payroll taxes, and they included that $201 again. How can I correct for February when I go to pay those payroll taxes?
