Where is my employer's 401k contribution on my paycheck?

I can see my 401k contribution, but nowhere can I find my employers contribution listed on my paystub (they do make a contribution). It used to be there, before the recent face-lift. I could probably calculate it, but I shouldn't have to. I have no idea what product I am using, nor how to find this out. I'm just a regular employee of a company who happens to use this service.


Well you should be able to figure out what version of QB it is. You tagged as "Desktop" so assuming it is, when the program and company file is open the top banner should read

"Company Name" - QuickBooks Desktop Pro (or Premier or Enterprise) 201X where x if 9 is 2019 newest version

If you use a browser to log in to use Quickbooks then it is QBO, QuickBooks Online and the payroll is online, not desktop.

Just for argument's sake, if true desktop there is an option in Edit>Preferences>Payroll>Paystub and Voucher Printing to check for on or uncheck for off to include/exclude non-tax company contributions on the voucher - verify it is 'on'

Online payroll may have a similar setting where printing of the non-tax company contributions is selectable

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.
