Download the latest payroll tax table update

QuickBooks Desktop provides payroll updates with the most current and accurate rates and calculations for supported provincial and federal tax tables, payroll tax forms and e-file options to active Payroll subscription customers.

Important: If you have employees in Nova Scotia, you may need to manually enter their Provincial TD1 amounts in QuickBooks Desktop. See Changes to TD1 Basic Personal Amount calculation for employees in Nova Scotia for detailed instructions.

The current payroll tax table is Version 10929004. It was released on June 13, 2019, and is effective from July 1, 2019, to December 31, 2019.

    • To check which version you have:
      • In QuickBooks, from the Employees menu, choose My Payroll Service, then Tax Table Information.
      • The first 3 numbers under "You are using tax table version:" reflect your tax table version and should read 10929004. You may already have release 109 if you updated your product earlier this year. In order to apply bug fixes and other improvements, we recommend you update your product with the links below.
    • Reminder: You'll need to be using QuickBooks Desktop 2019 or QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise Solutions 19.0  to download this tax table update.

If you subscribe to QuickBooks Payroll, you can download your updates over the Internet.

  • The easiest way to do this is to set up automatic updates so that QuickBooks downloads payroll updates automatically as soon as they are available.
  • You can also download the latest payroll update anytime while in QuickBooks.
    1. From the Help menu, select Update QuickBooks.
    2. Go to the Update Now tab.
    3. Select Get Updates.
    4. Once the download is complete, exit QuickBooks Desktop.
  • If you have already installed QuickBooks 2019 and wish to download the updates manually, use the link for your version of QuickBooks Desktop below. If you're using QuickBooks Desktop 2018, you will need to upgrade to 2019 before downloading the tax table updates:

If your TD1 amounts are not updated after installing the latest tax table update, perform the following checks:

  • Is it on or after the tax table effective date? For example, if you downloaded tax table version 109 on June 13, you will not see the updated amounts until the tax table becomes effective July 1, 2019.
  • After July 1, 2019, once you have downloaded the product update containing the new tax tables, you'll need to start a payroll or open and close QuickBooks Desktop for the TD1 amounts to update.
  • Have you had to manually adjust the TD1 amounts at any time in the past or after setting up a new employee? If you have ever manually updated the TD1 amounts for an employee, the new tax table will not override any previously adjusted amounts. You will need to manually update the TD1 amounts going forward.
  • Are any of your employees set up over the basic TD1 amounts? QuickBooks Desktop will automatically update TD1 amounts only for those employees with the basic amounts for the previous tax tables.

Please continue to visit this page for important updates about the payroll tax table updates for QuickBooks Desktop Canada.
