Fixing employee-paid payroll tax liability adjustments

If you adjusted employee-paid taxes with a company liability adjustment, you need to find the liability adjustments and associate them with employee(s) so that QuickBooks can track when each employee reaches the wage base limit for a specific tax.

  1. Generate a payroll item detail report.

  2. Click Customize Report at the top of the report.

  3. Click the Filters tab.

  4. Select Payroll Item from the list of filters.

  5. Click the Payroll Item drop-down list and choose All Employee.

  6. Click OK.

  7. Click the Dates drop-down list and choose This Calendar Year.

  8. Click the Total By drop-down list and choose Employee.

  9. Scroll to the bottom of the report.

    Liability adjustments not associated with an employee are grouped together under "No name."

  10. Double-click to QuickZoom on any employee-paid tax.

  11. If the Liability Adjustment window opens and this adjustment is for just one employee, select the Employee option and choose an employee to associate with this liability adjustment.

    If the Prior Payments of Taxes and Liabilities window opens, click Cancel.

  12. If the liability adjustment is a lump sum for many employees, you need to enter individual liability adjustments for each employee. After you've entered the adjustments, delete the original liability adjustment.
