With assisted payroll can a voided paycheck be reissued if from a prior year without incurring additional taxes. Taxes already paid.Check was lost. Can this be fixed?

Employee got their direct deposit in 2016. All taxes have been paid.  Because of payroll provider withholding a TDI tax that employee wasn't required to pay, we were told to issue a paper paycheck for small net pay amount due to employee. This was done. Employee informed us check was lost. In error we voided the paper check.  By making this error, paycheck details for both the paper paycheck and direct deposit transactions show "void" as if the employee was never paid or taxes paid for that quarter.  We weren't able to get any help from assisted payroll.

Never Void a Paycheck.

You have a Banking issue; not a Payroll issue. You make a deposit for something Lost that won't be cashed. This entry and the real check entry Clear against each other, next reconciliation. Make Deposit to Other Liability (not yours to keep). Then, a replacement check pays out that same Other Liability.

You can use the Audit Trail to see what the paycheck included, or get your file copy of their paystub or your payroll summary file copy, and Recreate that paycheck, as it was, putting in manual values for everything.
