You can calculate liability and create payment checks for a single check date or range of check dates in CheckMark Online Payroll after setting up an employer payee and generating at least one paycheck. The liability amount can be overridden on the Create Payments window.
Important: Creating payment check in the CheckMark Payroll program in no way affects your employer reports.
Creating Employer Payments
- Click Run Payroll drop-down option from the menu and then select Create Payments.
- Select the date or range of dates for the employer payment calculation from the Check Dates list.
- Select the Payee(s) for the payment from the Payees list.
- Click Calculate Amount.
Step result: The calculated amount appears.
Note: You can override the calculated amount shown for the payment by editing the value in the Amount edit box. However, if you override the calculated amount on this window, it will not change any reports, as they are based solely on paychecks created.Once calculated, an employer payment’s calculations appear in the middle box. You cannot edit the calculation details. The calculation details for State W/H do not appear, only the amount due.
- Verify the check number and date and change if necessary.
Note: Check numbers can be up to 8 numbers in length. Letters and other characters entered will be truncated.
- Click Create Check.
Important: Employer Payments can only be created with a check date in the current payroll year.
