MA Covid Recovery Tax

I have installed the 22116 update, but when I follow the step to "Pay Employees" I do not get the prompt to set up the tax item,

Am I required to start an actual payroll run to get this prompt?

Thanks in advance for any help

Let me share some information about MA COVID-19 Recovery Assessment Tax. You'll have to set it up first before running your payroll. Let me walk you through how.

 

  1. Update your QuickBooks to the latest release.
  2. After installing the update, restart your computer.
  3. Go to Employees then Pay Employees. You’ll see a prompt to set up MA - Covid-19 Recovery Assmnt. 
  4. Select No, it “Does not include the rate for MA-Unemployment”, then tap Next.
  5. For the question “Have you already created your own payroll item?” tick No, then Next.
  6. Select Yesplease set up my employees, then select Next.
  7. Fill in your MA- Covid-19 Recovery Assessment rate, then Next.
  8. Click Finish.

 

If you're still not getting the prompt, you can manually add the MA - Covid-19 Recovery Assessment Tax item. Here's how:

 

  1. Go to Lists and then choose Payroll Item List.
  2. Scroll down towards Payroll Item, then select New.
  3. Pick Custom Setup, and then Next.
  4. Tick Addition, and then Next. Type in MA - Covid-19 Recovery Assmnt. and Next.
  5. Enter the account and the Tax tracking type (please refer to your accountant for the correct tax tracking).
  6. Click Next until Finish.

 

After setting up, you're now ready to run payroll. Learn more about managing COVID-19 Recovery Assmnt. in this article: Set up and manage MA COVID-19 Recovery Assessment Tax.

 

I'm also attaching this link here in case you need help with filing your quarterly taxes: E-file 940, 941, and 944 tax forms.

 

You can always tag my name if you have follow-up questions about MA Covid Recovery Tax. I'll be around to help. Have a nice day ahead.

Thank you for the clarification.

I will be running a scheduled payroll tomorrow, so I will then be able to apply your solution if I do not get the prompt..
