You must have a payroll service subscription to set up scheduled payments in QuickBooks.
If you have a QuickBooks Assisted Payroll subscription
Note: To pay your payroll taxes and other liabilities without setting them up as a scheduled payment, you can create a custom (unscheduled) payroll liability payment.
Why do my payroll liabilities show the wrong amount due?
I can't find a payroll liability check/e-payment.
Why does the Period column in the Payment Summary window display Custom?
If the liability payment includes scheduled payments from more than one accrual period, then the Period column in the Payment Summary window displays "Custom" next to the payment.
If the Period column displays an actual date range or period, then the payment includes payments for only one accrual period.
How do I handle an e-payment that was rejected by the agency?
