Payroll line in "Profit and Loss" report does not match Payroll Report

I have Quickbooks Desktop Pro 2018 and started using QB Payroll in May 2019. I added the Jan-May payroll info using payroll setup. When I run "Payroll Summary",  I am able to see my January-December 2019 Payroll expenses correctly, including the payroll expenses from Jan-May. However, when I run the Profit and Loss report, it does not account for Jan-May payroll. It only shows the payroll from May thru December. How can I correct this so that my Profit and Loss statement is accurate including the entire year payroll (January too December)? Thanks in advance for any help.

Thank you for posting here in the Intuit Community, @PF808


You can follow the steps below to resolve the discrepancy that you're having with your profit and loss report. 


Let’s run the Verify and rebuild tools. The Verify Data will identify any data issues within your company file. Then, the Rebuild tool will self-resolve it. Check the steps below:
Verify data:

  1. Go to File, then Utilities and choose Verify Data.

If it will detect an error, proceed and Rebuild your data:

  1. Go back to the File menu and then Utilities and select Rebuild Data.
  2. Choose OK if you’ll receive a message to back-up your company file.
  3. After creating the back-up file, the Rebuild Data utility will run automatically.
  4. Click OK when you get the message Rebuild has completed.

Check this resolve data damage with your QuickBooks Desktop company file article for more information.
