Hi there, @tina-altaclaro-c.
I want to ensure you'll be able enter employee deductions in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
Below are the steps you can follow in assigning deduction or contribution to your employee:
For your reference about the process, please visit this article: Add or edit a deduction or contribution.
Also, making changes to your employee payroll deductions such as the amount deducted, or remove the item from your employee is a breeze in QBO. Check this link for the detailed steps: Change or delete a payroll deduction item in Online Payroll. This also includes guidance on how you can perform the action to other payroll service.
Stay in touch if you have any other questions setting up deductions in QBO. I'm just a few clicks away to help. Have a great day ahead.
We don't use QB for Payroll, we use an outside processor. The situation is that when the payroll expense comes from the bank into QB, I split the categories by taxes, medical, etc. We recently had an expense come through where the amount was deducted from the employee's paycheck for medical (pre-tax) but none was taken out from the employer for that pay period. That reduced the total amount that was deducted from our account. For example - we owed $2500 total with taxes but since $120 was taken from his paycheck for medical, it only took $2380 from the bank. How do I account for that difference in the expense categorization?
