Washington State Paid Family and Medical Leave missing from Liability List

Went to pay Washington state Paid Family Medical Leave  tax and it was missing from my "Pay Taxes & Other Liabilities" list. It was there yesterday. I made a payment by using "Create Custom Liability Payment" but can't figure out why it is not showing up anymore.  That is where it was last year too.

Anyone else having this issue?

Everything seems to be in order.

Washington State Paid Family and Medical Leave missing from Liability List

Hello, @bjk.

 

I’m happy to help you pay the Washington State Family and Medical Leave tax. You’ll need to check the allowance’s set up to check the tax tracking type and taxes affected by this payroll item.

 

Here’s how:

 

  1. Go to the Lists menu. 
  2. Select the Payroll Item List.
  3. Double-click on the payroll item. 
  4. Choose Next repeatedly until you'll see the Tax tracking type details.

 

Another cause is the mapping of a payroll item.

 

  1. Click Lists, then go to Payroll Item List.
  2. Select a payroll item, then double click to open the setup.
  3. Continue clicking Next until you're on the Taxable compensation window.
  4. In the PAYROLL ITEM section, verify if the WPFML is checked or not.

Thank you.

Even though it showed on my Payroll Item list when I checked "Include Inactive" it had an x by it. 

Not sure why that happened but unchecked it and that did the trick.

Washington State Paid Family and Medical Leave missing from Liability List

I am doing the 1st quarter of 2020.  And the same thing has happened. The Washington State Paid Family and Medical Leave missing from Liability List.  It was there when I was doing the other tax reports.  Nothing has changed in setups and I verified everything is set up right per below discussion.  I think QB desktop Payroll has a glitch.  How to fix now?
