Please comment on the fact that we are instructed to map an expense account to the liability function of the payroll item in step 4.

I don\’t think this is right! Tracking both liability and expense accounts is done separately and I can guide you on how to do it, schroder1. The liability account can be applied before you can take credit.

To do that, you\’ll have to do a few things first. You\’ll need to get a Quick Report to see the balances for the credit. Please follow the steps below.

I think just using the defaults is a good idea — I can\’t seem to get an acknowledgement from Intuit that there may be an error in the forum-published setup.

But does that work? So, I\’m back to the forum to add one, and that again lands me in \”weird settings\” territory. I don\’t know the details of how payroll items interact with tax reporting, but I think the Other Tax and Addition items here should at least map to the same expense account. MariaSoledadG thank you for your detailed response. Unfortunately we\’re still not there. I\’m not asking about how to pay the liability, or how to take the credit.

I\’m asking whether step 4. Again, QB warns me not to do it. QB items are by default set up by Intuit!

Occasionally someone on the \”QuickBooks Team\” even accidentally? Yet, your instructions tell me to do it. Your screenshots of the instructions and your and your colleagues\’ paraphrasing of the instructions amount to the same.

Look, I read the instructions — I know what they say and just linking, screenshot-ing, and repeating them doesn\’t answer my question. If you\’re trying to tell me that step 4. Please don\’t link me to any more helpful articles — just a Yes or No will be fine; I really don\’t want to waste any more of the QuickBooks Team\’s time typing up thoughtful sounding pleasantries. Otherwise tax liability for employee taxes and employer Medicare and and state and local must post to same payroll liability accounts as regular pay.

Taking the credit for eligible wages paid against your normal liability, which includes liabilities for leave pay, is a separate calculation for which you simply pay less than you would otherwise owe or file for the cash advance. The separate calculation of leave pay and credits is part of the revised form. Depending on if the IRS will treat this as they do PPP loan forgiveness your expense for paid leave might not be a deductible payroll expense, due to the credit possibly not counting as income, another reason it has to track separate.

I recall a long time ago seeing the credit created in QB but never needed it until now. How do you select something that does not exist? This is a great point, john-pero.
