YTD values in Payroll History
Once a payroll run is saved to history, none of its values will recalculate including year to date amounts. YTD values will be correct in new payroll runs and reports.
Think of payroll history as a receipt. If a payroll run gets deleted, only the new payrolls and reports will reflect the updated year-to-date amounts. History won't automatically update year-to-date values.
I run a payroll Monday then Tuesday. My Tuesday payroll has Monday's payroll in its YTD.
I delete Monday's payroll, Tuesday's payroll history still includes Monday's payroll in the YTD.
I run a new payroll or run a report, Monday's payroll isn't in the YTD.
To run a report that shows a breakdown of your current YTD please check this article.
