We run a preschool and did not have school the last month. We were charged for payroll services in the last week and I was wondering what the policy was on this

We run a preschool and did not have school through June. I just got a notice stating that we were billed for the last payroll period, it was a period that no payroll was paid out. I was curious if this charge can be revoked since no payroll was reported for this period.


I'd be glad to help share information about running payroll in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT), accounting.

Though you didn't run payroll for a specific period (month) as long as you have an active payroll subscription for that period, you'll still be charge for your subscription. However, you won't be charge for the add on amount for your employee per month.

On the other hand, you can also get in touch with our Support Team to check if you're eligible for a refund. For the support's contact information, you can check it here:Contact the QuickBooks Desktop Customer Support Team.

You can also check this article for additional reference about the payroll services and features in QBDT: QuickBooks Payroll Services and Features for QuickBooks Desktop.

Feel free to add a comment below if you have any other payroll questions, I'll be right here to help you. Have a great day ahead!

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.
