How do I update the unemployment tax rate if "State Tax" is not under Payroll Setting as indicated on the online documentation?

I'm glad to clarify this situation, sokolov22.

 

You can click any of the states listed under the Taxes column. This will open the Company State Information page where you can enter the new SUI rate. Please see attached screenshots below so you know what I'm referring to.

The Tax Setup tab will also route you to the overview of the states where you need to click the state. Then, change the unemployment rate from there.

I've added this link, Enter or change state unemployment insurance (SUI) tax rates if you're referring to this article. It includes additional information and instructions for your guidance.

 

Don't hesitate to leave a comment below if there's anything else you need concerning payroll. I'm always around to help you out.

I am using Quickbooks Online and I cannot find anything of the sort under any menu.

Following the instructions on the linked page, I don't see any option called state taxes under My Company > Payroll Settings.

I have attached a screenshot of what I see instead.

Hi sokolov22,

 

You'll want to make sure to enter the state tax information when adding the employee so you'll be able to see the option. Let me guide you through the steps.

  1. Go Workers, then Employees.
  2. Select Add an employee.
  3. Enter the employee's info, and click Done.

Once done, you'll be able to see the option. You can check this article in case your employee works outside the primary work location: About Multistate Employment Payroll Situations.

 

You might want to go over on this article for additional information: Enter or Change State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) Tax Rates.

 

Let me know if you need anything else. I'll make sure to help.

I already have an employee added for the correct state and unemployment tax is being collected.  The problem is I need to update the rate.

Hey there, @sokolov22. I can help clarify where the menu provided by my colleague above is.

 

I've included an animation of how to get to that page below:

 

 

Just go to the Gear icon, then click on Payroll Settings. If you don't see those options on the Payroll Settings screen, you may have Full Service Payroll. If that's the case, you'll want to reach out to their Team to get your tax rate updated. 

 

Please let me know if there's anything else I can do to be of assistance. Have a good day!
