Watch a 6-minute tutorial about paying your payroll taxes and liabilities
QuickBooks allows you to pay your payroll taxes and other payroll liabilities, such as 401(k), or health insurance. There are three ways to pay your payroll taxes and payroll liabilities in QuickBooks:
Pay a scheduled payment that you've set up in QuickBooks
Pay supported payroll taxes electronically (e-pay)
Pay an unscheduled (custom) payroll tax or other liability
For QuickBooks to use the most recent tax tables available to automatically calculate payroll taxes and deductions, you must have an active payroll service subscription.
What if I have an Assisted Payroll subscription?
Each payee must be set up as a vendor in your QuickBooks company file.
Use the Payroll Liabilities feature rather than the Write Checks window to pay payroll taxes and other liabilities. If you use the Write Checks window, QuickBooks assumes you haven't paid your taxes, and the amounts on your payroll tax forms will be incorrect. When not to use the Write Checks window
