156  General Category / Payroll Software FAQ / How do you bring over "year to date" information into the payroll solution? on: May 21, 2007, 03:35:29 PM
Payroll Mate will allow you to go back to the first of the year to recreate payroll.  You can also create a dummy check for each quarter for each employee, dating the check for the end of the quarter so it will not affect your 941.  If you decide you want to lump checks for the quarter, you will need to know your YTD totals and you can override any calculation that Payroll Mate generated.   Keep in mind that you may want to lump each month separately due to 941 purposes.
