Payroll Error: This date is not a valid date in either fiscal year.  How do I correct the error?

Most likely, the fiscal year start and end dates have been set incorrectly. To check the fiscal year dates:

  1. Go to the Checkbook screen and find the Fiscal Year box in the upper left corner. Here you will find the start/end dates.
  2. These dates should not be 1/1/20XX 12/31/20XX, in most cases, but should reflect your fiscal year dates. Click on either date to change it.
  3. A calendar will appear. Select the correct date from the calendar.
