Is there a way to put non-taxable company contributions of term life insurance and long term disability on an employee pay stub?

This is not for insurance over $50,000.  I just want a way to show our employees what we are paying for them for these insurances.


Hello there, gpaccounting,

I can clarify this for you.

The employee's pay stubs shows how much their total pay and tax deductions are.

You can set up a non-taxable company contribution on payroll. However, these items won't show on the employee’s pay stub. As a workaround, you can pull up the Payroll Summary report for the complete details. This report includes:

  • Employee wages, taxes, and adjustments
  • Employee sick and vacation time
  • Net Pay
  • Employer taxes and contributions

At the same time, you can also Print or View in Excel the report from there.

To set up a company contribution, follow the steps listed below:

  1. Go to Employees tab.
  2. Click the Employee's name.
  3. In the Deduction and Contributions section, click Edit.
  4. Select Add a Company Contribution
  5. On the drop down, select the existing contribution or New Contribution.
  6. For the Amount per period, click the drop down arrow, and then select $ amount or % of Disposable Income.
  7. If using % of Disposable Income, only a single percentage can be used for a given company contribution.
  8. If you want to specify an annual maximum amount for company contributions, enter the dollar amount in the Annual Max field.
  9. Click Save, then OK.

Please see the attached screenshots for your guidance.

For more details, please check out this article: Set up company contributions to a retirement, medical, dental and/or vision plan.

That will provide you with information about your concern.

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.
