What are the payroll reporting parameters?

Hello @cbh2olp,


Welcome to the Community. Let me share some clarification about how payroll reports work in QuickBooks.


If you're referring to how QuickBooks populates the quarterly form 941, the explanation would be different for each line. Since the way we prepare the forms depends on the general instructions from the IRS or your state agency, I recommend you visit these links for more information:


If you mean the quarterly payroll reports, the basis for the information will always be the check or payment date. Your payroll taxes will reflect based on the information coming from the paychecks.


For additional reference, you can use the following article to view the list of payroll reports in QuickBooks: Run payroll reports.


On the other hand, if you’re referring to something else, let me know so I can provide the most accurate resolution.


Post a comment down below if you have any other questions. I'll be more than happy to help. Wishing you a good one.
