Payroll Items are items QuickBooks uses to help run the payroll process and direct the journal entries and accounts that will be effected by processing payroll.
We will add payroll items related to dental insurance. When adding dental insurance payroll item to QuickBooks we will have multiple options. The insurance can be employer paid, employee paid, and if employee paid can be before tax or after tax. We will add dental insurance that is employee paid after taxes in this example and compare it to other insurance options in future videos.
