Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

For live payroll processing only

After payroll checks have been entered via the Enter Transactions screen or the Enter Batch Payroll Checks screen, they are available for printing in the Payroll Checks tab of the File > Print Checks screen.

To print payroll checks, follow these steps.

  1. Choose File > Print Checks and click the Payroll Checks tab.
  2. Expand the list of payroll checks for each client by clicking the plus sign next to the client record. The payroll checks available to print for individual employees are displayed.
  3. Either mark the checkboxes for individual employees or mark the checkbox next to the client record to print all payroll checks for that client.
  4. When the appropriate checks are selected, click the Print Selected button to open the Print dialog.
  5. In the Print dialog, select your print options, and then click OK to print the checks.

    Note: The Complete Payroll Output button opens a version of the Print dialog with additional tabs that reflect the options available in the Print Checks, Print Reports, and Print Invoices dialogs. For more information about the complete payroll output feature, please refer to the Automating payroll tasks topic.

  6. The Check Printing Confirmation dialog displays to verify that all checks printed successfully. If they did, click Yes. If they did not, click No.

    Note: If you click No, the checks remain in the Payroll Checks tab until they are successfully printed.
