Can I get access to Workers Comp tracking with Desktop Basic payroll?



The worker's compensation feature is only available in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll Enhanced. You'll want to subscribe to our payroll service to access this feature. Let me show you how.


In your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT):

  1. Go to the Employees menu.
  2. Select My Payroll Service.
  3. Click Account/Billing Information.
  4. Sign in using your Intuit Account Login.
  5. Select Billing Detail.
  6. Click Edit billing info.
  7. Select I Agree once done.

You can also refer to this link in the QuickBooks Desktop Payroll section for more detailed steps.


Also, you might want to check this article that provides complete details in case you want to learn how to create a paycheck for your employee's: How do I create a paycheck for an employee? 


Let me know in the comment section if you have other concerns or questions. I'll be around to help. Take care and stay safe!
