This is the message I am getting when I try to run payroll. The selected pay date is in a filing period for which you have already filed a form. What do I do?

How do I handle this? It's not accurate. The selected pay date is in a filing period for which you have already filed a form. Please select another pay date.

This is the message I am getting when I try to run payroll. The selected pay date is in a filing period for which you have already filed a form. What do I do?

Let me provide some insights to fix this, @m.petras.

 

You can pay the EE outside of payroll and enter the case of a correction to have the check added and forms amended. 

 

In addition, you can delete the future-dated paychecks and re-run the payroll for the correct pay date. 

 

Here's how: 

  1. Go to the Workers or Payroll menu, then select Run payroll.
  2. Select a pay schedule, then Continue.
  3. Select the employees you want to pay.
  4. Verify if you have selected the correct bank account, pay period, and pay date. 
  5. Change the employee's pay method as needed.
  6. Enter hours worked if applicable and then select Preview Payroll.
  7. To edit or preview a specific check, select the Edit ✏️ icon next to the check's net pay, then select OK when done.
  8. When you're ready, select Submit payroll.
  9. To print paychecks, select Print paychecks, then Finish payroll.

For future reference, please check out this article: Run payroll reports. This can help you view useful information about your business and employees.

 

I would appreciate it if you could tell me how it goes. Know that I'm always here to help you with your payroll concerns. Stay safe and healthy.
