payroll taxes not deducted suddenly

Hello, @Pampacxo7752.

 

I appreciate you for sharing the steps you've initially performed. Let's run the Payroll Detail Review report and manually calculate the Wage Base column with the Payroll Tax Rate.

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Reports menu.
  2. Choose Employees & Payroll.
  3. Select the Payroll Detail Review Report.

Once completed, refresh the Payroll Detail report to get the correct tax amounts for each item with flat-rate. Multiply the amount in the Wage Base column with the Payroll Tax Rate. If the result matches your current YTD liability amount, this means that you're overpaid in your previous payroll. If this happens, QuickBooks automatically catch up and adjust your liability.

 

Lastly, you can the Payroll Checkup. This tool allows you to review employee records, payroll item set up and wage and tax amounts and suggests a solution for each discrepancy that it identifies.

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Employees menu.
  2. Choose My Payroll Service.
  3. Select Run Payroll Checkup.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions.

If you've already verified the taxes setup on your employee's profile, please refer to this article for other steps in fixing wrong tax calculation: 

Let me know if you have other questions about your employee's paycheck. I'll be on the lookout for your reply.

Hi there, @SSchreiber.

 

I hope you're having a good day so far. Let's take a new approach to the reason the payroll taxes didn't come out of the last paychecks. Let's go in and verify if the annual limit has is set incorrectly or reached. If your payroll has been calculating correctly in the past, then all the sudden stops, it's possible that there's a checkmark in the annual limit box. This will set a default limit, and the taxes will no longer get deducted. You can go in to check this setting with a few simple clicks:

 

1. On the top menu bar go to List, then Payroll Item List.

 

 

2. Locate the payroll item and right-click to make the change.

 

 

3. Click Next until you get to the limit type screen.

 

 

4. Make sure the limit located at the bottom is correct ( If this is not correct, update it to the exact amount).

5. Verify the Limit type is correct.

 

 

6. Hit Finish.

 

 

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any additional questions. I'm here to help any way I can. Have a good day.

I've  tried reverifying my subscription and it does not sync automatically. I have already processed the direct deposit and it will be deducted from my bank account tomorrow. What can I do now to correct this?

Hello there, semo35.

 

When paychecks are already processed through direct deposit, we're unable to stop the process. I've got this article for more details: Cancel a Direct Deposit paycheck.

 

What you can do is wait for the money to be deposited into the employee's bank. Then, do an internal agreement with your employee to return the extra amount, or wait for QuickBooks to auto-correct the taxes next payday. 

 

You can also reach out to our Customer Care Team for further assistance. Before doing so, please check this article to view our support hours: Support hours and types.

 

Here's how:

  1. Click Help located at the top.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. Enter a brief description of your issue and click Continue.
  4. You can choose Message an Agent.

 

Feel free to get back to us if there's anything else you need. Thanks.

payroll taxes not deducted suddenly

I run bi-monthly payroll.  My last payroll deductions were fine but when entering detail for my end of the month payroll, no deductions are calculating.  This is on ALL payroll list items.  My updates are current.  My billing information is correct and payment is current (03/02).  But I get a message saying QuickBooks account needs attention.  I have tried Reactivate Account and Verify Account.  Again, everything is up to date.  I need to get this cleared up ASAP.  I have read related messages without finding the answer.

 Please help.

Hello, @PAPPC

 

When you get the Your QuickBooks Payroll account needs attention notification, this means that we're unable to process your payment for your payroll subscription. This is why the automatic calculation of taxes has been temporarily disabled. 

 

Since you’ve already tried all the troubleshooting steps, I’d suggest reaching out to our Customer Support. They can check your account in a secured environment and further check why you’re still having an error. 

 

You can check this article on how to reach them: Contact the QuickBooks Desktop Customer Support Team.

 

Here’s more on how to update or renew your subscription for QuickBooks Desktop: Update or renew your subscription.

  3. Select Get Updates to redownload the updates.
  4. When the download is complete, close and re-open QuickBooks Desktop.
  5. On the QuickBooks Desktop Update Service window, select Install Now.

Next, revert the paycheck to ensure taxes are calculated. You can check this link for the detailed steps: How to save or revert pending paychecks.

Thanks for joining on this thread, @pankajgoel.

 

I'll help you fix this payroll concern to make sure your payroll taxes will be calculated in QuickBooks. 

 

Before we start, can you tell us if you see any alerts in your Payroll Center? This can be the reason why your taxes are not calculating when creating paychecks. 

 

If so, we can log in to your payroll account page and check the status of your subscription. Here's how: 

 

  1. Go to the Employees menu and select My Payroll Service.
  2. Click Account/Billing Information. Then, check the Service Status under the Service Information section.
  3. If the status is Active, log out of the page to automatically download an update. If the status is Inactive, click the Reactivate button and follow the succeeding prompts.

 

Once done, let's delete the paycheck by following these steps:

 

  1. Locate and open the paycheck.
  2. Select the Delete icon, then choose Delete check.
  3. A pop-up message will appear, click OK to permanently delete the transaction.

 

Then, recreate the paycheck and check if the taxes are now calculated in it. If not, we can revert the paychecks to refresh the payroll details.

 

In addition, we can create a payroll summary report to check your payroll totals, including employee taxes and contributions. You can also customize it to get the information you needed the most.

 

I'm always here to help if you have any other payroll concerns or questions. Just tag my name in the comment section and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
