payroll taxes have stopped computing

Payroll taxes have stopped computing automatically.  Also I am now seeing state information for Georgia (GA) when I am in Texas (TX) and have not made any changes.

Re: payroll taxes have stopped computing

 Let's get your payroll taxes working as it was before, @garymaryw.


Here are the checklists to ensure your payroll is calculating taxes accurately:

Here’s how:

  1. Click Employees.
  2. Select Get Payroll Updates.
  3. Choose Download Entire Payroll Update.
  4. Go to Update.
  5. When the download is complete, a message such as “A new tax table and/or updates to your payroll tax forms have been installed on your computer. Click OK to read about the changes.”
  6. Click OK.

Once completed, reboot your computer to make sure that all payroll components are updated properly.  You can now proceed with reverting the paycheck you’ve created a while ago.


Here’s how:

  1. Go to Employee Center.
  2. Choose the specific employee.
  3. In the Enter Payroll Information window, double-click on the paycheck you want to revert.
  4. Scroll to the bottom part of the page.
  5. Click on Revert.

That should do it! Feel free to visit us here in the Community if you have other questions on how payroll taxes are calculated in QuickBooks. I'm always here to help.
