QB Issue Resolution:
You don’t need to add cash tips as an income. These are gratuities/rewards that are paid to employees in cash. Once your employee received a cash tip, you’ll have to add it in the paycheck for tax purposes, then take out the amount so they won’t get paid twice. I’ve got you an article for more information: Report tips in and out on employee paychecks in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll.
Regarding the Profit and Loss report, the payroll taxes amount is already added in the gross wage. Having said that, you no longer need to add up the payroll taxes to the gross wage amount.
