Payroll not calculating taxes

Any ideas?  Payroll subscription wants an update everytime I start a new payroll as well.  I have updated several times.

Re: Payroll not calculating taxes

I ran payroll and all of the taxes show up on the checks but I do not see the amounts due on the payroll liabilities


Re: Payroll not calculating taxes

Greetings, @RSIndustrial.


Let's go over your schedules for tax payments to make sure it is set up correctly and you'll get to see the due amounts on the Pay Liabilities tab.


Here's how: 

  1. From the Employees menu, select the Payroll Center.
  2. Select the Pay Liabilities tab.
  3. At the bottom, under Other Activities, select Change Payment Method.
  4. On the left pane, click Schedule payments.
  5. Select the tax liability you want to edit or schedule a payment for.
  6. Select Edit.
  7. Enter the appropriate information.
  8. Select Next or Finish.
  9. Click Finish Later.


You can follow the same steps for other payroll taxes. Once done, you can now see your upcoming, due, and overdue liabilities under the Pay Taxes & Other Liabilities section. 


Also, if you want to file a payment electronically through QuickBooks Desktop, you can use the following article to set this up and some FAQs about this feature: E-Pay tax liability payments.


That should do get your work done. Please let me know if you have any other questions about QuickBooks Payroll. I'm here to lend you a hand. All the best!
