How do I enter source deductions ?

Hi there, a-romanchuk-aubu. 


Welcome to the QuickBooks Community. Let me share different details on how payroll taxes and deduction works in QuickBooks. Then, to ensure you'll be able to enter their transactions on the program.


If you're referring to payroll taxes, you can pay or file state and federal payroll taxes online. Beforehand, you'll have to make sure you complete your tax setup and check what taxes to file and pay after you’ve signed up for e-services so your taxes stay accurate.


Then, you can click this article to view further details and how to perform the process: Pay and file payroll taxes and forms in Online Payroll.


Furthermore, the balance of your payroll liability will decrease as you pay the taxes. With this, you can pull up and customize the Payroll Tax Payments report to find out how much you've paid or to see tax payments you have made electronically. Also, tax payments you have recorded manually in your online payroll account.


Here's how:


  1. Select the Reports menu on the left panel.
  2. Choose Payroll Tax Payments in the search bar.
  3. Click the Customize option under the Share button.
  4. Filter the details and other necessary information.
  5. Click Run report.


However, if you mean to enter and track a deduction or contribution in your QuickBooks Online Payroll, you can open this article to see the details and how it works: Add or edit a deduction or contribution.


Lastly, I'm adding this article to further guide you in effectively managing payroll data using QBO: QuickBooks Online Payroll. It contains topics about taxes, employees, and other payroll topics.


Let me know if there's anything else you need help with taxes and other payroll-related concerns. I'm always here to help you anytime. Take care and keep safe!
