Q2 Payroll liability to IRS was lost; need to reprint check

Our Q2 Form 941 and payment to the IRS (at the end of July) was never received by them, presumably lost in the mail, and I need to print and submit a new check.  What is the best way to do this without messing up the liabilities, etc., that are already entered in Quickbooks?

Q2 Payroll liability to IRS was lost; need to reprint check

Thanks for clarifying that out, @ksevert.

 

I'll get you pointed on the right track on how to reprint a liability check in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

You can look for the liability check from the Payroll Center to see if it's still there. This way, you can open the check and print it afterward.

 

Here's how to locate the check:

  1. Go to the Employee Center.
  2. Select the Transactions tab to go to the Transaction Center.
  3. Select Liability Checks
  4. In the Date field, select the year or quarter that the liability check is in.
  5. Look for the check and open it.
  6. Click the Print button at the top to print it. 

If the check is not in the said page, you can create a new one by following these steps:

  1. Go to the Employees menu, then select Payroll Center.
  2. Select the Pay Liabilities tab.
  3. Under Other Activities, select Create Custom Payments.
  4. In the Select Date Range for Liabilities window, select a date range, then OK.
  5. Select To be printed if you want to print the liability check. If you paid using a handwritten check, leave this clear.

For complete details about creating and printing a custom liability check in the system, please refer to the Create an unscheduled or custom liability check section in this link: Set up and pay scheduled or custom (unscheduled) liabilities.

 

Lastly, I'd like to share this article, which talks about recreating missing payroll liability check in QBDT in case you need it in the future: Learn how to recreate a deleted direct deposit payroll liability check in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll...

 

Please get back to me if you have further questions about this. I'll make sure you're all set. Have a lovely day!

Q2 Payroll liability to IRS was lost; need to reprint check

Hi Maybelle_S,

 

My question was actually about an IRS payment for Q2 withholdings rather than an employee's paycheck.  Would the steps be similar for this?  I can see the second part the steps would be different, for sure.
