Pay liabilities by pay period rather than paycheck date
QuickBooks uses the paycheck date when calculating liabilities.
You can pay the liabilities due.
You are setting up a payroll liability schedule or you are having trouble with the amounts due in a schedule you have already set up.
When your pay liabilities in Create Custom Liability Payments, be sure to use paycheck dates. All federal and state agencies use paycheck dates. If you pay liabilities by pay period dates instead of paycheck dates, there is a high risk you will pay the incorrect amount. That can result in penalties and interest for underpayment, or waiting a minimum of 6 weeks after you file returns to get the overpayment credited.
