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 112 on June 20, 2020, you will not see the updated amounts until the tax table becomes effective July 1, 2020.
  • After July 1, 2020, 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.
