Payroll taxes

I have the enhanced payroll. It has ran well until the entering of payroll at the end of August. I added a new employee. After I paid both myself and the new employee, QuickBooks did not figure my payroll taxes. I normally enter in the net amount that I write the check for and it figures the payroll taxes from that. This time it didn't figure any payroll taxes. What is my problem?

Re: Payroll taxes

Hello there, David1973.


I have some few steps to resolve this. First, let's make sure that you're using the latest release of QuickBooks Desktop. We also have to update your payroll tax table. Once updated, let's check if it's calculating already.


If not, let's try to revert your paycheck. This is to refresh your payroll information so that the taxes will calculate.


These are the steps to follow:

  1. Open your employee's payroll information.
  2. Locate and right-click on your name that is highlighted in yellow.
  3. Select Revert Paycheck.

If the same thing happens, let's verify if the payroll items are set to calculate based on Net or Gross. Here's an article for your guide: Payroll items on paycheck are not calculating or are calculating incorrectly.
