Removing Paychecks from "To Send"

So I just activated direct deposit. Everything is all set up and the bank account is verified.  When I created one paycheck and went "To Send" to intuit, every single paycheck from the beginning of 2019 popped up in the "To Send" area.  They are all $0 except for the one paycheck that I actually want to send.  QuickBooks is giving me an error and I'm assuming it's because the checks are over a year old.  Is there a way to remove these from the "To Send" area?  It is over 6,800 paychecks for that period and I would really like to avoid clicking on every  single one!

Removing Paychecks from "To Send"

Hi @Lawngirl,


I'm here to lend a hand with your query. There isn't an option to remove these paychecks from the Items To Send area since it's required for you to send them to Intuit. 


You don't have to worry though since you can send them all at once. 


Let me show you how:


  1. Go to the Employees menu.
  2. Select Send Payroll Data.
  3. In the Send/Receive Payroll Data window, ensure that all paychecks that need to be sent are checked. 
  4. Tap Send All.
  5. Type in your Payroll Service PIN.
  6. Press OK.

Additional details of this process can be found in this article: Send payroll and direct deposit paychecks in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll. If you want to know if your paychecks were received, scroll down to the To check if payroll was received by Intuit section.


If you need to change the bank account you use for direct deposits, view this article: Change your direct deposit bank account for QuickBooks Desktop Payroll. Here you'll find 3 sets of steps, these are: how to add, update and verify your new bank account information. 


Do you have other questions? Post them below, and I'll get back to you.

I have tried doing what you said several times before posting.  I keep getting an error with "Message Code 2107"

Hi there, @Lawngirl.


Let me help you get past the error 2107, so you can run your payroll smoothly in QuickBooks Desktop.


Let’s update your payroll tax table to ensure your payroll has accurate information.


  1. Go to the Employees menu.
  2. Choose Get Payroll Updates.
  3. Select the Download Entire Update checkbox.
  4. Choose Download Latest Update, and a window appears when the download is complete.


Also, you can automatically update the payroll tax table to turn on automatic updates in QuickBooks. See update QuickBooks Desktop for more information.


I'll be keeping an eye on your response. Take care.
