I started doing payroll in QB 2/1/20. In January, I did everything manually (payroll, paying IL and FED WH). How do I delete overdue notices that I still owe Jan taxes?

Hi there, @papc.

 

The tax overdue notice will show in your QuickBooks Desktop (QDBT) if you have transactions that need your attention. You'll want to file and pay your tax to remove the overdue tax notice.

 

However, if you've already paid your taxes, you'll want to record all the tax payments as paid to close the tax notice. To close them, let's enter a prior tax payment in your QBDT.

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Help menu and click About QuickBooks.
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Y or Ctrl + Shift + Y to open the Setup YTD Amounts window.
  3. Select Next until you reach the Enter prior payments section.
  4. Click Create Payment in the Enter Prior Payments window.
  5. Enter the Payment Date and For Period Ending date accordingly.

Here's an article you can read for more details and steps (read Enter historical tax payments outside the payroll setup window section): Enter historical tax payments in Desktop payroll.

 

I also encourage getting in touch with your accountant for guidance on which account to use in recording this. That way, we'll ensure the accuracy of data entered and avoid any errors.

 

You might also want to check this article for reference in case you want to learn how to customize your employee reports: Customize payroll and employee reports.

 

You can always post a comment below if you have other concerns with your QBDT software. I'll be around to help. Have a good one!

I have already manually paid January ILLINOIS WH and FEDERAL WH.  The payments have been deducted from my business checking account.  I am getting notices within QB that they are overdue and need to be paid.  How can I delete these notices because they are paid in full for the month of January, 2020?

How do I delete two notices that I need to pay taxes?  I didn't start QB Payroll until February, 2020.  I did January manually.  I paid all of my IL WH & FED WH obligations and ALL payments have been processed but it is still telling me that they need to be paid and they don't.
