Payroll today, last day of work in New York, will taxes be taken out of my employees? i received a letter saying that it wouldn't be taken out for now?

Welcome to the Community, @jbinteriordispla. I understand the urgency to pay your employees on time and I'm here to help you set a payroll tax exemption for each of your employees. 

 

Before doing so, I'd also suggest consulting with a tax professional to make sure your books are accurate. 

 

Here's how to modify tax exemptions:

  1. In the Workers tab on the left menu, select Employees.
  2. Click the employee's name.
  3. Under the Employee Details, click on the pencil icon beside Pay.
  4. Click the pencil icon under the question What are (employee's name) withholdings?
  5. Scroll down until you reach the Tax Exemptions section and click the drop-down arrow. Then, choose the taxes the employees are exempt from. Click Done.

 

This will automatically remove the Social Security and Medicare fields when creating a paycheck.

 

For more insights, you can refer to this article: Employee payroll tax exemptions.

 

Feel free to message again if you have more questions, @jbinteriordispla. I'm always around here to help. Stay safe.
