Setting up payroll tax liabilities

Hi, I'm the sole employee of my corporation in New York and on the payroll of my business using Quickbooks payroll. I'll soon be working in Los Angeles for 3 months and need to figure out how to set up payroll and taxes via Quickbooks for that one job in CA. I am already in the process of qualifying my corporation to do business in CA. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Congratulations on your upcoming business in California, @Flyingpancakes,

 

You can set up your work locations to pay the correct taxes. Let me guide you how.

  1. Click on the Gear icon.
  2. Select Payroll Settings.
  3. Under Business Information, click on Work Location.
  4. Click on Add a Work Location.
  5. Click on Save.

That should do it! This will include the calculation of your  California State taxes when running payroll.

 

Keep me posted if you have other questions about setting up your payroll state taxes. I'll be glad to help.

Thanks for joining us here, TonyL2.

 

If you're using QuickBooks Online Payroll, follow the steps that were shared above on how to change or verify if the work location is set up to PA. 

 

Although, some payroll taxes, including state and local withholding taxes, are calculated according to the employee's residence location as well as your employee's work location.

 

They might also be calculated and reported differently, depending on the payroll regulations of the particular states where your employee lives and works.

 

I'd also recommend checking out these articles for more details:
