How do I display this list?
Go to the Lists menu and click Payroll Item List.
The Payroll Item list holds the payroll items that are
currently set up in QuickBooks. The list is initially grouped by item type, but
you can resort by item name.
What are payroll items?
QuickBooks uses payroll items to track individual amounts on a paycheck and
accumulate year-to-date wage and tax amounts for each employee. There are
payroll items for compensation, taxes, other additions and deductions, and
employer-paid expenses. You can assign these payroll items to different
accounts as needed.
When the payroll feature is turned
on, QuickBooks creates payroll items for federal taxes and advance EIC for you. To fully track your
payroll, you may need to add more payroll items to the list. For example, you
can add payroll items for state withholding, state disability, state
unemployment, other state taxes, local taxes; employee deductions of any kind;
additions (such as employee loans); commissions; and company-paid expenses
(such as company-paid health insurance).
