I have an employee that in October, federal tax is no longer being withheld?

Thanks for reaching out to the Community, @jameshennessy3.

 

The Do Not Withhold option for federal and state income taxes in the employee setup may have been checked. To verify this, let's proceed to the employee's profile.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. In QuickBooks Online (QBO), go to the Workers or Payroll menu at the left pane to get to the Employees page.
  2. Select the name of the employee to open their profile. 
  3. Tick the edit (pencil) icon beside Pay.
  4. Next to the withholding section, click the edit (pencil) icon.
  5. Check the Federal Filing Status/State Filing Status

 

In addition, you can also run a payroll report to check the details of your employee. I suggest you use the Payroll Summary by Employee report to view a comprehensive report of wages, deductions, and tax info.

 

You may also consider checking out this article for more insights about why this is happening: 0.00 or no income tax withheld from paycheck.

 

Please know that I'm only a post away if you have any other issues or concerns. I'll be more than willing to assist. Have a good one!
