Payroll Center shows incorrect Overdue Liability Payments due

We ran our first 2019 payroll last week, and when processing was complete 2 lines apeared under Payroll Center/Pay Liabilities with a Status of "Overdue" from 4th quarter 2017.  These were tied to an end-of-fiscal-year employee bonus that was paid (one for our Direct Deposit Liabilities account and another for our State Tax Withholding account).  Sidebar:  the payments were initially posted in the wrong quarter (Q3) but moved to 4th Quarter shortly after the payments actually went out.


These liabilities have long since been paid with a LIAB CHK entry made by paying the liability from the Payroll Center per normal process, and up until the first 2019 Payroll, these lines were not showing up in Payroll Center at all.


The Payroll Liability Balances report shows these items to have a balance of $0.00, and the General Ledger accounts agree.


I suspect there is a bug that may be corrected by Intuit without me having to alter anything, but is there something I should check or perform to zero this out again?

Payroll Center shows incorrect Overdue Liability Payments due

Entering adjustments in this fashion zeros out the "Amount Due" column but the Payroll Summary report moves the bonus payment from "Direct Deposit 1" to "Net Pay." 


The add-on we're using for processing payroll direct deposits (Big Red Consulting's solution) normally has the actual take-home pay under Direct Deposit 1 and $0.00 under Net Pay.  So I'm concerned about this not showing the same total as before.


Again, I want to emphasize that all these values were correct as of the last payroll in 2018.  Something happened to throw this into the current state between then and 1/2/2019, when we processed our first payroll for 2019.
