How did you set up am pit of state employee on payroll?

Hi there, @meg14.


I'd be glad to help you set up an out-of-state employee in QuickBooks Online.


You can add a work location and assign your employee to it. If you are subscribed to Payroll Enhanced, you may follow the steps below:


To add a Work location:

  1. Go to Settings, then Payroll settings.
  2. Choose Work Locations under Business Information.
  3. Click the Add a Work Location link.
  4. Enter new work location details.
  5. Select Save.


After that, enter the new work location to your employee's settings. This is how it's done:


  1. Go to the Payroll tab, then Employees.
  2. Choose the employee's name, then Edit employee. Also, for new hire tick Add an employee.
  3. In the Edit employee details page, go to section 2.
  4. Click on the drop-down button beside the Work Location, choose the correct one.
  5. Select Done.


However, if you're subscribed to QuickBooks QuickBooks Online Full Service, Core, Premium, and Elite, you'll need to get in touch with our Customer Support Team to add a new work location. They have the tools to finish the process. Here's how:


  1. Go to ? Help.
  2. Select Contact Us.
  3. Enter "Add a new work location in a new state" in the text box, then select Let's talk.
  4. Choose Start a chat or Get a callback.
  5. Confirm your request.

You may also check our support hours before contacting them to choose what time that fits on your schedule.

I've also added this reference that you can use in the future if you need to track a specific aspect in your payroll: Run payroll reports. This contains the name and description of payroll reports.


Please don't hesitate to tag my name in the comment section if you have other concerns or questions regarding QuickBooks. I'd be happy to help you through it. Take care always.
