I hope you can help with this question. I have searched a number of places and have not found much info. We use QuickBooks Payroll and Time Sheet feature in QuickBooks Pro 2008. My question is, we pay several employees a Supervisor Bonus that is set up in each of their respective Compensation screens. We recently started using the Weekly Time Sheets. When we then start the scheduled payroll, that bonus does not appear in the compensation window. Is there a way for the bonus to automatically pop up for each employee for each pay period so I don't have to manually enter it and run the risk of not applying it to the employee's paycheck? Thanks for your help.

1. If you haven’t already, go to Lists > Payroll Item List
and create an Addition payroll item for the bonus. It's important that the payroll item be an Addition
type, not a Compensation type. The Tax Tracking Type, however, should be set to Compensation.
2. Go to the Employee Center, double-click on the employee, change the tab to Payroll and Compensation Info, and add the payroll item you just created in the Additions, Deductions and Company Contributions box.
