I am taking over for a bookkeeper and payroll liabilities are a mess. For over 14 years she paid payroll liabilities by writing a check and occasionally using the pay liability feature. I have a particular problem I haven't been able to clear. There is an employee garnishment showing on the payroll liabilities report of negative $12,655.50. I have confirmed that all payments were made and the balance should be zero. I need to reflect the correction for 2020 (or so I think). Can you help me?
Thank you for your reply. I tried this, but didn't affect accounts because the expense side is correct. Because the previous bookkeeper paid with a check vs liability check. The garnishments were accrued, but show unpaid. Is there another solution? Thank you :)
