Hello there, @bumberg.

 

Welcome to the Community. Let's work together to verify why you're being ask to pay state and federal taxes.

 

The taxation setup in QuickBooks is only dependent with the paycheck information entered. Let's run a report to verify this:

  1. Click Reports.
  2. On the search field, enter Payroll Summary.
  3. Customize the date range to month of January.
  4. Click Run Report.

In case there are paychecks, and you're sure that they're not necessary, you can delete them:

  1. Click the highlighted Net Amount.
  2. On the Paycheck screen, click Delete.

 

That should zero out your tax liabilities, bumberg.
