ME UC-1 Report doubling gross wages

I just created my ME UC-1 report for Quarter #1 and all of our gross wages have been doubled.  The UC contribution rate was also missing from the form even though it is correctly in my payroll items.  Everything was fine until we were forced to update QB.  I'm afraid this will happen again Q2.  Any suggestions on why this happened and how to prevent it from happening again?

ME UC-1 Report doubling gross wages

Hello there, EJPerry. I've got some information regarding the doubling gross wages and why this is happening on your end. 


Since you've mentioned that your gross wages have doubled, I suggest utilizing the Run Payroll Checkup feature in QuickBooks Desktop. This tool scans your payroll information to identify any potential errors or missing information, reviews your compensation, benefits, and tax setup, as well as verifies your wage and tax amounts. It can also help you correct any discrepancies in your gross wage. 


Here's how: 


  1. Go to the Employees menu and choose the My Payroll Service dropdown. 
  2. Click Run Payroll Checkup
  3. Tap the Data Review. Check for any errors. 
  4. If there are any errors after clicking Data Review, you'll need to fix them since you can't continue without fixing the errors.
  5. In the Review your payroll data window, select No to allow the Payroll Checkup to create wage-based discrepancy adjustments.
  6. Select Continue, then Finish.


After following the steps above, kindly check for any changes in your gross wage and rate. If you notice any discrepancies in your rate, you can use the Adjustment Payroll Liabilities option to correct them. This will help you to rectify any errors that may have occurred during the payroll process: Adjust payroll liabilities in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll
