QB Issue Resolution:

Payroll is an Expense for you, so of course it shows on the P&L.

If you Job Track the paycheck details, then it also shows on Job Reports, because you Job Tracked it.

I don’t understand the question. These are the results of you using those functions.

I will attach screenshots.
