I Need To Write A Check To My Employee For A Bonus, Can I Do That If I Use Quickbooks Payroll And Do I Need To Withhold Payroll Taxes?

Yes, Quickbooks payroll will allow you to write a separate check for employee bonuses. A separate payroll item for Bonus Pay will need to be created in the payroll setup process. Also, bonus checks are paid net of payroll taxes similar to regular pay except with additional withholding amounts for federal and state income tax either using the percentage method or the aggregate method. Please use as reference attached links.
