I'm here to share some information about entering taxes in QuickBooks.
When you've entered a past-dated check, you'll be prompted with the bypass page. The system won't allow you to enter a past-dated checks for several reasons.
If the pay is for the prior period, you can enter a memo on the description indicated its pay period.
I've added this reference for more information: Tax Penalty Protection.
Let me know if there's anything that I can help with. Keep safe!
Hi there, preearth.
Allow me to step in and help by sharing information to resolve this.
You can enter the check as a prior payroll, but if you don't have that option anymore, the best bet is to contact QBO Payroll Support so they can enter it for you. They have a different tool for entering historical payroll in the past tax periods.
