Payroll state tax liabilty

This can happen if the liability payment schedule is not added, maquinalez.


Let's create the payment schedule by following these steps:


  1. Go to Employees > Payroll Center.
  2. Select the Pay Liabilities tab and at the bottom, select the Change Payment Method link under Other Activities.
  3. In the QuickBooks Payroll Setup window, click the Schedule payments links.
  4. Under Scheduled Payments, select the state and click the Edit button.
  5. Choose the Payment (deposit) frequency from the drop-down list.
  6. Hit the Finish button.

After the steps, check to see if you have the liability created for the state.
