How do I expense a reimbursement on a paycheck to a specific expense category instead of it just being a "reimbursement"?

I can help you categorize the reimbursement to a specific expense account, @anni1.

 

You just need to go to your Payroll Settings where you can change the mapping of the account. Let's simply follow these steps below:

 

  1. Go to Settings and click Payroll Settings.
  2. In the Overview section, select Accounting under Preferences.
  3. Look for the Reimbursement drop-down and click it. Then, select the specific expense account.
  4. At the bottom part, click OK.

 

That's it! You can also run payroll reports to shows details for each paycheck you've created, including total wages, taxes withheld, and deductions.
