When you enter a new payroll on Step 1: Payroll Entry, all active salaried employees will appear in the employee list.
Under the “Pay?” column, you will see a Yes/No drop-down. The “Pay?” box is automatically set to “Yes.” The employee’s flat-dollar salary rate will be included in the payroll. To turn off a salaried employee’s regular pay, select “No.”
In most states, it is not necessary to enter hours for a salaried employee, but you may choose to do so for tracking purposes. Some states require you to enter hours for salaried employees for tax purposes. The pay for a salaried employee will not change depending on the hours entered. You can, however, enter additional money to be paid in addition to or instead of their regular salary rate.
