This is my 5th week doing payroll in quickbooks. After I enter the total hours worked the gross is the same as the net. No taxes are being deducted.
Likely this means you don't have a current tax table for this year. Last year's will continue to work for awhile and then I think it stops, right about now.
Usually getting payroll updates will fix this.
Paychecks you've 'started' may not calculate even after getting the update and may need to be reverted/restarted.
Welcome, @qp and thank you for coming to the QuickBooks Community for assistance. I have some insight on why your gross and net are the same to pass along.
What @BRC said may be causing this. If you don't have the current tax table, taxes won't be deducted properly.
Here are the steps to get that updated:
Download the payroll tax table update within QuickBooks Desktop
Install the payroll tax table update from a CD (Disk Delivery service)

Please keep me posted on your results with this here, the Community has you covered. Thanks again, I'll be standing by for your response.
