I need to add shareholder health insurance to my gross wages but I do not see it in the drop down list for adding deductions/contributions.  Where do I go to do this?

You can see it under the How much do you pay this employee? section, Mugsy.

 

Here are the steps:

  1. Click Workers, and then Employees.
  2. Click the name of the employee you want to pay S-corp owners health insurance amount.
  3. Click Edit employee.
  4. Under How much do you pay this employee? click the Pencil icon.
  5. Click Even more ways to pay this employee to see more pay types, and select it from there.
  6. Click Done.

I'll be here if you have additional questions.

Re: add S-Corp 2% Health Insurance to wages in QBO

I have the same question but it does not appear as a choice in my QBO (see attached).  I've searched everywhere I can think to resolve this and in the evenings (when I work) the support desk is closed.  Help!

Thanks for joining this thread, @tahoeblue08.


I know you’ve already accessed the employee’s profile, let’s open it again and then go to the You can also pay section to check for the S-Corp 2% Health Insurance pay type. Here’s how:

 

  1. Tap the Workers menu to choose the Employees tab.
  2. Selecting these options will open to the My payroll page. From there, click on the employee’s name to view its profile.
  3. Hit the Pencil icon for Pay under Employee details.
  4. Go to the How much do you pay section and then click on the + Add additional pay types link.
  5. Mark the box for S-Corp Owners Health Insurance under You can also pay.
  6. Click on Done to save the changes.

However, if the payroll item is still missing, login to your account using the incognito mode or private browsing. When using these sessions, none of your information is saved or tracked along the way.


Follow the keyboard shortcuts below to open a private browser:

 

  • Google Chrome: press Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: press Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Internet Explorer: press Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Safari: press Command + Shift +N

If you’re able to see the S-Corp Owners Health Insurance box, switch back to the regular browser and clear its cache to start fresh. This process also boosts its overall functionality.
