Awhile back there was an announcement from Intuit that there would be an extra day for processing payroll. Now when I start to submit the same notice appears of a possible $100 late fee. Please advise.
I’m here to share some details about the late fees in processing late payroll in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).
QuickBooks wants to ensure you'll be able to pay your employees on time. Thus, you'll be required to submit your paycheck before 5:00 pm Pacific Time (PT), 2 banking days before the pay date. The $100 late fee will take effect if you missed submitting your payroll before 5:00 pm PT.
To avoid any penalties and late fees, you’ll want to ensure to process your payroll on time. For the complete overview of payroll late fee, check out this article for reference: Assisted payroll ancillary fee schedule.
If you’re able to submit your payroll on time and received the notice about a possible $100 late fee, then I’d suggest contacting our Support team. There, they’ll be able to securely check your account and investigate the reason why you’re being prompt for a late fee. Here’s how to contact them in your QBDT software:
