It would be my pleasure to help answer any questions you may have about collecting Washington Paid Family and Medical Leave premiums.
If you elect to pay the employee's share of the premium, we can zero out the employee portion rate and add the amount to the company portion payroll item. You can modify the percentage by going to Employee Center or through the Payroll setup instead.
These steps are available from our article about this new tax: Washington Paid Family and Medical Leave (New Tax 2019).
You can also use a reimbursement payroll item to complete the payroll of the employee. However, it would be best to consult the state agency and confirm if the setup is correct.
Please keep in touch with me here if you need more assistance with the new tax. The Community will be around to help you out.
