    I searched here but couldn't find the answer...

    I created an account under Retained Earnings called Owner Draw for payments
    to myself since I'm not on the payroll. When I go to write a check to
    myself, the program wants an account however, it only allows three options:
    Customer, Vendor and Employee...

    How is the business owner supposed to write checks to himself?

    What does the word "under" mean?

    When I go to write a check to
    Customers, Vendors and Employees are not accounts.

    Set yourself up as a Vendor. Just don't print yourself a 1099 at the end of
    the year. :)

    I would set yourself up as an employee instead of a vendor.

    Just my opinion.
