Duplicate checks

Hello. Why are my checks duplicating in reconciliation and when I run off my 1099's? It seems that they are counted twice, really messing everything up. Looks like they are recorded when the check is written and also when the check is cashed.

I would appreciate any help......thanks.

Re: Duplicate checks

Good day, @Richardrobo,


Writing a check in QuickBooks Desktop is a form to record money out into a petty cash account or pay credit card dues.


You can either void or delete one of the written checks to avoid duplication.


Here's how to void or delete a check:

  1. Go to the Banking menu.
  2. Select Use Register.
  3. Choose the account you used to write the check from the drop-down.
  4. Locate the check.
  5. Click Edit Transactionedittransaction.PNG
  6. Click Delete Check or Voiddeletecheck.PNG
  7. Confirm the process by clicking OK.

Please check out to this for more details: Create, modify, and print checks.
