QuickBooks Payroll Liability Not Showing can occur for a variety of reasons.

Instead of using the Current Liability Account to track the account, you’ve created a liability.

The liability account has been put to dormant mode.

During the payment setup, the incorrect date range was specified.

The QuickBooks Latest version has superseded any prior version of QuickBooks.

Past obligations have been eliminated after the four Calendar Quarters. Use Create Custom Liability Payment to pay any past due with a liability of five quarters or more.
