FFCRA credits

Nice to see you here in the Community space, @lilavalv.

Yes, you can apply those credits to reduce your IRS checks. You'll want to create a check to pay your payroll liabilities. Let me walk you through the steps.


In your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) software:

  1. Go to the Employees menu and select Payroll Center.
  2. Select the Pay Liabilities tab.
  3. Mark the Federal 941 and other liabilities in the Pay Taxes & Other Liabilities section. Make sure the check amount and item list under Payroll Liabilities are accurate, and then select View/Pay.
  4. On the Payroll Liabilities window, select Create.
  5. Enter the National Paid Leave Credit, National Paid Leave - Health Premium and the amount of the 941 tax liabilities you qualify for based on the Payroll Item Detail Report you created. Enter the amount of the credit as a negative amount.
  6. Select To be printed if you want to print the check.
  7. Then click Save & Next or Save & Close.

You can also visit this link for more details in creating a check to pay your payroll liabilities.


Let me also add this article for your reference in case you need to enter a prior tax payment in your QBDT software: Enter historical tax payments in Desktop payroll.
