Voiding a payroll check from prior quarter

If I void a payroll check from a prior quarter, will QB adjust the tax liabilities and the employee's YTD?  I'm assuming I will have to file an amended return.

You are correct, Stripes68.


QuickBooks Desktop will adjust the payroll liabilities once you've voided a paycheck. This will apply to both year-to-date (YTD) and quarter-to-date (QTD). If you've paid it, there's an option to either apply it as a credit or get a refund.


For state taxes, it depends on their policy. You can contact your state agency to verify if they can process either a credit or refund. You'll want to read these articles for more details:
