I already filed my SUTA 1st QTR for 2017 through e-file. I never got a notice about my rate change, but I'm guessing there was a rate change from 1.12% to .75%. because the Texas Workforce Commission changed my report to show a rate of .75%. If I change this in QB now after I've already filed my 1st QTR report will it mess things up really bad? Or will it retroactivley fix any errors?

It should give you the option to change from Jan. 1.  Since the quarter is already closed, however, you will probably receive a notice of over payment of this tax and will need to make an adjustment when you pay the next quarter.  If they send the funds back, just deposit them to that payroll expense acct.

My Workers Comp is set up as Other Tax.  I don't even show a field for Rate.  I've modified each employee records one at a time with the new rate - but how do I change it to show up permanently - for the next new employee?

On my QB Desktop Pro 2017, you go to "Lists" on the top tool bar; then, within the  drop-down menu, click on "Payroll Item List"; on the "list" that appears, under the column "Type" (of account), go down to "State Unemployment Tax."

Is this for Texas? If so, I believe the lowest is 0.36% which is made up of the 0.10% Employment and Training Investment Assessment and a 0.26% Replenishment Tax Rate.
