QB Issue Resolution:

If you set up payroll yourself then you would have to manually enter the expense debit and liability credit. If you are using quickbooks payroll the employer portion should automatically post to the payroll liability account even though it is an expense. Sir Isaac Newton said for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. In accounting this means double entry. For the employer share to post as an expense it also has to post somewhere else at same time. Look at those entries to see where they are going. Sounds like it is posting not where it should.
