Additional Medicare Tax Withholding

I have a highly compensated officer that has a single paycheck with a gross of over $ 8,000,000.00.

The program will not withhold additional medicare tax for this employee or any highly compensated employee after approximately $ 4,000,000.00.

Is this a program issue? - I understand, there is no limit or cap on wages for this tax.

Additional Medicare Tax Withholding

Hi Tears1959,


Let's run some steps to ensure that the system withholds additional Medicare tax. That said, we'll have to ensure that you have the updated tax table. Here's how you can do that:


  1. From the Help menu, select Update QuickBooks.
  2. Select Update Now and then choose Get Updates.


Afterwards, let's check to see if the program now withhold the additional tax. 


I've also added this reference to know if the additional Medicare tax is still in effect: Is the Additional Medicare Tax still in effect?


Let me know if there's anything that I can help. Keep safe!
