How do I change my State Unemployment limit?

I am running manual payroll on QuickBooks 2015, and I need to edit my limit for state SUI. I have read that it is part of tax tables and is not editable by the user. But since I do not subscribe to payroll (and QB has discontinued payroll for QB 2015), I cannot get a tax table, so cannot update this limit.

 

Is there a hack I can use to edit the limit?

 

Thanks in advance!

Since you don't subscribe and QB does not calculate your taxes, it does not matter.

I think you are right! I was thinking that QB was calculating the percentage amounts on SUI for me, but I realize that I have been doing it myself!

If you stop using the "provided tax item" and make your own Payroll Item for this, as a Company Contribution, then it will also allow you to put in the rate and set the limit; it will Compute your own items and it will manage against the Limit. Example:

 

Everyone is subject to the FUTA item up to $42. Don't use the FUTA item; make your own.

You should be able to manually change that in the Payroll Items List (assuming your 2015 version has that).
