Exempt employee wages from State Uenemployment Tax
How do you remove the wage limit for exemption from our State Unemployment Tax. All of our wages are subject to the State Unemployment Tax and non are exempt. However, I am unable to change the limit so all employees wages are taxable for SUTA.
That is accessible from your Employees menu > Get Payroll Updates > Payroll Update Info, it is also provided following every payroll tax table update, and it is on the web for any specific tax table.
Here (I cannot seem to change the Font, sorry):
"A custom payroll item is to be used for governmental and reimbursable employers. The surcharge for Montana governmental and reimbursable employers is applied to the total wages paid in the tax quarter. QuickBooks Payroll is unable support this type of tax item. Follow the instructions below to setup a custom payroll item to track the total wages paid in the tax quarter. From the Payroll Item List, click the Payroll Item button and select New. Select Custom Setup then click Next. Select Other Tax then click Next. Ensure the dropdown selection is User Defined Tax and select Tax is paid by the company, then click Next. Enter a name for the item, i.e. AFT Surcharge, then click Next. Enter the name of the agency the tax payments are made to and the assigned account number. Select the liability account and expense account you want to track this item to (confer with your accountant if you are unsure). Click Next. Ensure the Tax tracking type is set to None and click Next. Enter the tax rate provided by the agency. Continue to click Next, then click Finish (You will be prompted to select Taxable Compensation and whether the tax is calculated before any other Taxes or deductions, leave these selections at their default settings unless directed to change them by your accountant or the Montana Unemployment Insurance Division.)
