How do i find my payroll tax account number

Let me walk you through the steps on where to find your payroll tax account number, @kathy24.


Let’s go to your Payroll Settings and locate your tax account number from there. Here’s how to achieve it in your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account:


  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Select Payroll Settings.
  3. Under Taxes, select your preferred State Taxes.

You can also check this article on how to locate and change your tax account number in QBO: Changing a state account number.


If you’re unable to enter your payroll tax account number in QBO, I suggest contacting the IRS or your State Tax agency. There, they’ll be able to provide you with your payroll tax account number.


I’ve also collected this resource that can guide you in preparing and filing your federal and state tax forms.


If you have other concerns or questions about payroll tax in QBO, you can always tag me in your reply. I’d be more than happy to assist you. Have a great day ahead!
