I have a NYS unemployment insurance over payment & would like to apply it to the next quarter in quick books. How do I go about doing that?


Hello there, janet,

Let me help resolve your NYS Unemployment Insurance overpayment and apply it to the next quarter. Here's the process to perform it in QuickBooks:

  1. Go to Taxes, then choose Payroll Tax.
  2. Click the Pay Taxes button.
  3. Review the list of SUI payments. An overpayment appears as a negative (-) amount.
  4. Click Resolve Overpayment.
  5. Pick Apply to Next Period.
  6. Click Mark as resolved.

You'll also receive a Credit Balance letter from NYS advising of any overpayments.

You can refer to this article for further reference: Resolve tax overpayments or underpayments.

If you have other concerns about overpayments and how to apply it in QuickBooks, please leave a comment below. I'll be around to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
