Mileage Reimbursement entry in Other Payroll Items

When I enter the employees hours, I am then entering a Mileage Reimbursement under the "Other Payroll Items".  The problem is the amount is not flowing to the "Employee Summary" so the employee is not getting paid the reimbursement on their direct deposit. I have already submitted the payroll to Intuit so then I have to go in and create a Non-Scheduled Payroll for the mileage reimbursement. Why is this not being included in the paycheck? Do I have to enter it twice?

Re: Mileage Reimbursement entry in Other Payroll Items

Greetings, @ehedrick.

 

Thank you for posting in the Community. I'd be glad to share some information why the Mileage Reimbursement amount is not showing to the Employee Summary.  

 

There are several reasons why a payroll item doesn't calculate or calculates incorrectly on a paycheck. One of them is if the item is setup to calculate based on quantity or hours.

 

If a payroll item is set to calculate based on quantity or hours, you need to manually enter the quantity or number of hours in the Quantity column in the Preview Paycheck window. Here's how to check: 

  1. From the List menu, select Payroll Item List
  2. Double-click the payroll item.
  3. Click Next until the Calculate Based on Quantity screen. 
  4. Change the setting to Neither if this item does not require hours or quantity to calculate.
  5. Click Next until you can click Finish.
  6. Click Finish.

Let's try to create a non-scheduled payroll for that employee to see if the amount shows on the Employee Summary section.  

 

If you get the same result, I suggest checking this article for more troubleshooting steps: Payroll item not calculated on paycheck or is calculating incorrectly.

 

If you need additional help, feel free to contact our Payroll Support. They can initiate a screen sharing session to help you get to a resolution quickly. 

 

Here's how you can reach them:

  1. Go to https://payroll.intuit.com/support/contact/.

  3. Click View Contact Info button on the right.
