If you’re all set up and used to Quickbooks, you’re probably not interested in this idea. I don’t consider myself cheap, but I try and avoid spending money on something I feel comfortable doing myself. Many years ago, I made a payroll spreadsheet with Federal and State withholding tables. I tweaked it for a few years, but I haven’t changed it much for a while now. Have two sheets for each employee, one with a table with a line for each pay period where I just enter the hours, pay rate, & special additions or deductions, and one with two copies of their pay stubs (one for me, one to include with their check). Another sheet summarizes all employees totals for W2 reporting. In Quicken, I have memorized transactions with the proper split categories so I just enter the correct numbers. It’s a combination of doing something I feel I am capable of, and enjoying building spreadsheets. I get along fine with Quicken this way.
