How do I make an employee exempt from withholdings on QuickBooks?

I can show you the easy steps, kate11172002. 

 

The option to exempt an employee with a tax withholding is through their profile. Let me show you how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu, click Employee Center
  2. Double-click on the employee's name.
  3. From the left menu of the Edit Employee window, select Payroll Info.
  4. Click Taxes from the right portion of the window.
  5. Under the Federal tab, you can select Don't Withhold in the Filing Status drop-down.
  6. Go to the State tab and do the same thing. 
  7. Click OK then OK again to save the changes. 

These changes will take effect to future payrolls since QuickBooks don't retroact. You can check out this article on how we calculate employee taxes

 

Let me know if you need more help. Take care!
