Does anyone on QBO have employees that reach the point where you have to pay additional Medicare Tax and how do you do it since QBO does not offer that feature?

Thanks for joining us here in the Community, @accounting-airpr.

 

Allow me to provide some insights about adding Medicare tax in QuickBooks Online (QBO).

 

We can create an additional health insurance deduction for your Medicare tax. However, I suggest contacting our QBO Payroll Support team to seek further help for the tax adjustment. This way, they can check your account securely and perform more steps to get you going. 

 

To create a medical insurance deduction, here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Payroll menu, and then choose the Employees tab.
  2. Select an employee, and then tap the pencil icon ✏️ beside Pay to edit.
  3. Click the +Add a new deduction under Step 4.
  4. Pick Health Insurance under the Deduction/contribution type drop-down ▼.
  5. Choose Medical Insurance under the Type drop-down ▼, and then fill out other info.
  6. Click OK once ready.


To get in touch with our support, here are the steps how:

 

  1. Go to the Help (?) menu, and then select Contact Us.
  2. Enter your question or concern in the search box like "Need help with Medicare tax adjustment", and then click Let's Talk.
  3. Choose either Get a Call or Start Messaging options.

Also, to make sure your issue gets addressed on time, please check out our support hours: QBO Payroll support hours.

 

Also, you can run the Payroll Tax and Wage Summary report to know how QuickBooks calculates tax amounts on employee paychecks and the wage base limit for each tax. Simply go to the Reports menu, and then refer to the Payroll section.

 

Then, you'll want to customize it to pull up personalized details and formats. Please check out this link for more info: Customize reports.

 

I'll be around to lend a hand if you have more questions about managing your taxes or anything else related to QuickBooks. Take care and have an awesome day.

Thank you. This post helped me with another issue I had but with regards to my original problem, the program actually does figure out the additional .9% Medicare tax but adds it to the regular Medicare tax that the employee pays. It doesn't separate it out to a different line item.
