New employee has child support deduction. I put deduction under his employee info, but if i deduct this weekly, who sends child support the check? We also dont use checks

We also dont print checks off with QB online, we use an old school checkbook. We dont have checks to use with QB.

Hi there, @monnin90

 

Thank you for posting to there Community. 

 

I can share some insights about child support. QuickBooks Payroll will only deduct the garnishment from their earnings. You'll be the one who is responsible for sending the check to the relevant party. However, you have mentioned that you don't use checks. I suggest contacting the state for other options.

 

I've also added an article that you can read for more information about the garnishment: Compliance with wage garnishment orders

 

I'll be always around to lend you a helping hand if you have any other questions about your Child Support. Have a great day!

When did this change?  The payments were being sent to the child support division using QBO Full Service Payroll until November of 2019.  Then they stopped.  Was this part of the 'payroll platform upgrade/change'?

Hi there, Trac-1.

 

We didn't receive any updated changes about payments being sent to the child support.

 

Since the payments were being sent to the child support division using Full Service Payroll was stopped, I suggest contacting our QuickBooks Support Team. They can handle garnishments correctly.

Thank you for the info on contacting Full Service Payroll, unfortunately, getting a call back doesn't work.  Everyone that has called me back, gave me the number to call full service payroll.  I was on the phone with payroll this morning and was told "we don't make those payments, you have to."  I can look at the child support register and see where, on 11/22/19, a child support payment was submitted on my client's behalf.  When did that change?

Hello, @Trac-1

 

To further check the payroll subscription and to ensure that there are no changes with the account, I suggest reaching back to our Customer Support for QBO Full Service Payroll. They’re the ones who’ll handle garnishments. 

 

You can follow the steps provided by my colleague, ChristieAnn in reaching back to them. See this article for detailed guidance: Contact the QuickBooks Online Customer Support team.

 

Let us know if there's anything that I can help. Have a great rest of the day!
