I e-pay payroll taxes and accidentally entered the wrong date for the payment to be deducted. How can I fix this? Payments will be a week late. Thank you!


Hello there, mom.of.boys,

The Withdraw On date is the date when the agency will debit the funds from your bank account and settle the payment. Let's check the status of the payroll tax e-payment so you can identify what steps you need to perform in order correct the payment date.

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu, then select Payroll Center.
  2. Select the Pay Liabilities tab.
  3. In the Payment History section, select the E-Payments tab.
  4. Locate the payment and check it's status under the Status column.

Here's an article that provides the steps on how you can monitor your electronic transactions after submitting them in QuickBooks Desktop: Check E-file or E-pay Status.

If the status is "Submitted to Intuit", this means the e-payment has been submitted to us. You can still correct the Withdraw On date by contacting our QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Support Team. They can verify the e-payment and can provide another option so you can resubmit it with the correct date.

If the status is "Submitted to agency", this means the payment is already sent to the agency. I'd recommend contacting the agency to let them apply the payment directly so you'll not be penalized. 

If you wish to know the dates that affect e-pay and e-file processing, this article will guide you through: Dates Affecting E-payment Submission and Processing.

Please let me know if you have other payroll taxes concerns. I'm just around if you need further help.

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.
