An employee would like me to increase his income tax deduction on his pay cheques. Is there a way I can do this?

Hello bradsovlandscape,

 

QuickBooks Online's payroll options allow you to easily set up and modify your employee's payroll tax information to make sure the system is calculating things correctly. The two payroll options work a bit differently, but that's okay, I'll show you the steps for both. Pick which one you're using and follow along.

 

Updating TD1 in Standard Payroll

  1. Select Employees from the left menu.
  2. Click the name of the employee in question.
  3. Select Edit employee or click the pencil icon beside the Pay section.
  4. Click the pencil icon for question What are [employee's] tax withholdings?
  5. Enter the additional amount the employee would like taken off to the Additional tax amounts that you want to deduct from each pay cheque box.
  6. Click Done to save.

Update TD1 in Advanced Payroll

  1. Select Employees in the left menu.
  2. Click the Employees tab.
  3. Click Edit for the employee in question.
  4. Go to the Taxes tab on the employee profile.
  5. Enter the amount needed into the Withhold additional tax field.
  6. Choose whether it's a percentage % or dollar figure $.
  7. Click Save when done.
