FUTA Refund Different In Quickbooks

US Treasury sent me a FUTA overpayment refund of $460.49 for 2017. The refund matches the amount on Form 940.


Quickbooks has an overpayment of $340.50. The only option I have is to click "Mark as Resolved."


How do I correct what is in QuickBooks Online Simple Start?

Hi MPLS213,


You can click "Mark as Resolved" within QuickBooks Online and select "request for a refund".

FUTA Refund Different In Quickbooks

This is still causing problems in my FUTA account. The refund check ($460.49) and From 940 was larger than what Quickbooks Payroll calculated as an overpayment ($340.50).  I had clicked "Marked As Resolved" but I think this is still off.


Where should I post the refund check deposit ($460.49)? It just goes into Payroll Expenses right, thus lowering that expense account since it's a refund, right?

Yes, you're right. The refund check deposit should be posted into your Payroll Expense account. It gets back the amount and records it in the correct account. Here are some articles that you can check read through about FUTA:
