Feature Request: Allow Negative After-Tax Deductions in Paycheck Entry UI

Quicken Windows Subscription does not allow negative values to be entered as an After-Tax Deduction in the paycheck entry/editing UI. Attempting to do so results in "You don't need to enter a negative amount for a deduction. Quicken will handle it for you" dialog.

This prevents entering not-uncommon reimbursements and offsets like stock award taxes that are reflected in actual paystubs as negative deductions.

Common guidance to work around this is to enter as an earning without assigning a tax line to the entry. This, however, results in incorrect W2 gross calculations as the pseudo-earning is still included in W2 gross, which is incorrect.

Quicken should allow entering negative values as After-tax deductions and simply treat these as what they are: negative deductions.
