Paying unemployment tax online - deducted from credit
In Quickbooks I started the year 2019 with the NYS 2018 employment tax rate. Mid-Feb they sent me my new rate for 2019. Usually Quickbooks will correct the current quarter so my NYS-45 reconciles. This time it did not. Once I updated the rate it stopped creating the liability portion. Not sure why? I have another business on another computer and it did work properly. The only thing I changed was the actual rate in the Payroll Items List. All other payroll and employee fields remained the same as always. The payroll is not at its limit so it should be deducting. Any suggestions? I have double checked my set-up for Payroll Items and Employee and it is all correct.

It's possible that local internet files are the reason behind this unusual behavior in the product. Cache tends to hold onto information, and over the time causes issues in your web pages like errors inside QuickBooks.
Let’s first verify by loading the site using a different browser or a private window. Here’s how:
However, if you continue to get the same result, I recommend giving our Online Payroll Team a call for further assistance. They can pull up your account in a secure environment, which we are unable to do in public forums, and help you with the payroll adjustment.
