Why is my payroll liability not showing up in the Payroll Center?

I recently created a company contribution to employee HSA accounts in addition to the employee contribution.  I created it the same way, with the same payment schedule, to the same liability account as the employee contribution.  When I run the payroll, the company contribution shows up on the employee paycheck, and it shows up on the payroll liabilities balances report, but it is not showing up in the Pay Taxes & Other Liabilities window a the top of the Payroll Center so that I can pay it.  The employee contribution is there, but company contribution is not.

I have checked the payment schedule in Payroll Setup and it is identical to the employee contribution.


Likely you need to create a payment schedule for it.  Liabilities only show up once you've done that.  Start the process using the button below the liabilities table.

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.
