How do i add S Corp Health Insurance to a payroll when QBO says the net pay must be above $0.00? I don't want to actually pay him this amount, i want it added to wages?


Good day, amanda,

Are you trying to create a zero net check to withhold taxes of your employee's s-corp health insurance? If so, I’ll show you how:

  1. Add an Other Earning pay type to the employee's profile.
  2. Use the Net to gross formula to determine the gross pay amount.
  3. Choose Workers then hit Employees and click Run payroll.
  4. Select a pay schedule and an employee.
  5. In the OTHER EARNING box, enter the amount determined by using the net to gross formula.
  6. Select Preview payroll.
  7. Select the edit (pencil) icon beside the NET PAY amount.
  8. Zero out all unwanted deductions
  9. Edit the Federal Income tax or State Income tax amount, and then select OK.
  10. Select Preview Payroll> Submit payroll

For more details you can check this article: Create a zero net paycheck in Online Payroll.

Please let me know if you’re referring to something else. I’ll always be here to help. Have a great day!

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.
