Hello there, smcardle2024,

You can get rid of the duplicate paycheck by deleting it. Let me provide scenarios to help you with this.

If you've created the paycheck manually, then all you need to do is to locate and delete it right away. Here are the steps if you know the name of your employee:

  1. Go to the Employees menu, then choose Employee Center.
  2. Select the employee's name.
  3. Under Reports for this Employee, choose QuickReport.
  4. From the Dates drop-down, choose All or enter the date in the From and To fields, if you know the date.
  5. Look for the line entry with the incorrect paycheck. 
  6. Double-click it to display the paycheck.
  7. Select the Delete icon, then choose Delete check.
  8. Click OK in the pop-up message.

Once done, the system will detect the changes you've made and automatically correct the amount of your liability check.

If you created a direct deposit paycheck that has already been offloaded, we don't recommend deleting it. It's possible that it is already posted to the employee's account.

You can refer to these articles below for more information:

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.
