Re: Taxs

Greeting, @Alanivy.


It's nice to see you in the Community space. I'd be happy to help share some information about setting up the deductions and payroll taxes in QuickBooks Online. 


Based on the product selected on your post, you're using QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE). If you're using this version, payroll is currently unavailable in QBSE. 


However, if you're using QuickBooks Online Payroll service, payroll taxes such as Social Security and Medicare are set up automatically. Also, you can add weekly deduction items. Let me show you how:

  1. From the left menu, select Workers.
  2. Select Employees.
  3. Choose the name of the employee.
  4. Click the Pencil icon beside Pay.
  5. On section 5, click the Add a new deduction link.
  6. Enter the deduction item details.
  7. Select OK.

For additional information about this, I've attached this article for reference: Add, edit, and delete a payroll deduction item.


However, if you're referring to something else, feel free to drop a comment below. I want to make sure everything is taken care of in your end. Wishing you and your business success.
