Is there something else I should do to get the udpates for payroll tax forms? Everytime I run payroll I'm told taxes will not be deducted. Is there a way to solve this?

Let me assist you, @nate-standeford.

 

I’d be delighted to share some information on why QuickBooks isn’t calculating taxes when you run payroll.

 

Here are some:

  • The total annual salary exceeds the salary limit.
  • The gross wages of the employee's last payroll are too low.

To resolve this, please ensure to run the latest payroll tax table update to keep your taxes and forms updated.

 

When the federal withholding is not deducting correctly, you’ll have to revisit your employees’ profiles to check the setup. QuickBooks calculates the federal withholding based on these factors:

  • Taxable wages
  • Number of allowances/dependents
  • Pay frequency
  • Filing status

To review your employees’ payroll information, please follow these steps:

 

  1. Go to the Employees menu.
  2. Choose Employee Center.
  3. Double-click the employee’s name, one at a time.
  4. Select Payroll Info on the left.
  5. Please make sure the Pay Frequency is correct.
  6. Click the Taxes button.
  7. In the Federal tab, review the Filing Status and Allowances fields.
  8. Hit OK.
  9. Click OK again.
