Adjust balance sheet payroll liability

I need to clear a positive amount in my Payroll Liabilities account from a transaction last year. How can I adjust with a journal entry to make the payroll liabilities back to zero?

Debit the payroll liability account and credit wage expense.  For $.06, it's an immaterial amount so I wouldn't be too concerned that it's perfect.
