Enter prior liability payments during payroll setup

You must enter summaries of payments you made for taxes and other payroll liabilities from the beginning of the calendar year through today. If your company has not made any payments for payroll taxes or other liabilities during this calendar year, you can skip this adjustment.

Enter summaries of payments made during the current calendar year for the following:

  • Each payroll tax (whether withheld or paid as a company expense)

  • Each deduction you withheld and then paid (for example, employee-paid dental insurance)

  • Each company contribution you tracked by payroll period and then paid (for example, company-paid health insurance)

    This adjustment is only for payroll liabilities that you paid. It isn't for expenses (for example, salaries, bonuses, or hourly wages) paid directly to employees.

To enter prior payments of taxes and liabilities

  1. Go to the Employees menu and click Payroll Setup. Shortcut

    Important: Before entering prior payments, you must complete Steps 1 through 4 of the payroll setup interview, which include setting up your company information, setting up payroll information for your employees, and setting up company taxes.

  2. Click Payroll History, then Tax Payments.

  3. Follow the onscreen instructions, which will guide you step-by-step through the process of entering prior tax and liability payments.
