Re: S-Corp 2% Health Insurance

Hello there, Alexandrath. 


I'm here to lend a hand with creating the payroll item in QuickBooks Desktop.


If you have inactive payroll subscription at present, you can remove the service key and change the payroll feature to Manual.


Here's how:


  1. Click the Employees tab at the top menu bar.
  2. Select My Payroll Service.
  3. Click Manage Service Key.
  4. Click Remove.
  5. Click Yes.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click the Edit tab at the top menu bar and select Preferences.
  8. Go to Payroll & Employees.
  9. Go to the Company Preferences tab.
  10. Below QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Features, select No payroll and click OK.

Once done, let's activate manual payroll by following these steps:


  1. Click the Help tab at the top menu bar.
  2. Select QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. In the search bar, type in Manual and hit the Enter key.
  4. Below Answers in Help, click Process payroll manually (see screenshot below).
  5. Click the manual payroll calculations hyperlink.
  6. Click Set my company file to use manual calculations.
  7. Click X to close the window.
  8. Click OK.
