Hello there, susangarrison67.
Before anything else, let's make sure that your QuickBook Desktop and tax tables are updated.
I've got these articles for the steps:
While taxes are not automatically calculated when you are using the manual payroll in QuickBooks, you will need to compute the taxes yourself. You can use the Paycheck Calculator by clicking this link: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/r/tools/.
I'm also sharing this article for reference: Set up payroll without a subscription.
Please let me know if there's anything else you need. Thanks.
