I dont think my payroll taxes being taken out are correct amounts. Can you help please?

Hello, @wdunnells.

 

QuickBooks calculates your payroll taxes on the year-to-date amount. This is based on the payroll data and transactions you've entered. Here's more information on how QuickBooks calculates payroll taxes

 

To make sure that the payroll taxes are calculated correctly, you should have the most recent QuickBooks Desktop software release and Tax Table updates before creating any new paychecks. 

 

Then, check if the tax rates are correct for each payroll item by running Payroll Detail Review

 

To run this report:

  1. Go to your Reports menu and then select Employees & Payroll
  2. Set the Date
  3. Go to the Amount column and review the accuracy of the rate assigned to each tax item.

If there's any discrepancy, use a liability adjustment to correct employees’ data. For detailed instructions, see this article:

I'm always here if you still have questions about payroll taxes. Have a wonderful day!
