I have an Oregon state transit tax calculating on my payroll but it doesn't apply to the county we are located in.

I have an Oregon state transit tax calculating on my payroll but it doesn't apply to the county we are located in. I made it invalid but it still calculated... is there any way to remove that transit tax line item? This is the first time I have run payroll through QB and it's got me stumped! Our business is in Multnomah County, so we have to pay the Tri-Met Transit Tax, which it correctly calculates. Unfortunately it is also calculating the Lane Transit District Transit Tax, which only applies if you live/work in Lane County. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

 

Cheers,

Todd

I'll help you remove the Lane Transit District Transit Tax, tschur.

 

Let's edit your employee's profile to remove transit tax line items when running payroll in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

Here's how:
 

  1. Go to Employees menu and then Employee Center.
  2. Double-click the name of the employee, select Payroll Info.
  3. Click Taxes.
  4. Select the Other tab.
  5. Choose the Item Name column, then select Delete.
  6. Click OK, then OK.

 

For more details about the process, please see this article: Change State Taxes for an Employee.

 

Additionally, I've included an article that will guide you in ensuring your compliance with state payroll tax regulations: Internal Revenue Service Payroll Tax Compliance.

 

In case you'll need assistance in dealing with payroll tasks, please don't hesitate to get back on this thread. I'm always here to help you.
