How to recalculate Federal Tax withholding on a completed payroll for one employee?

I have completed payroll and one of my employees would like to increase her Federal Tax withholding for this pay period.  So I went into the employee record and updated her Federal Tax Withholding.  Now how do I fix her paycheck since payroll is complete?   I have QB Desktop.  I have not done any electronic transfers or written any checks.  So I am thinking it should be fairly easy for QB to recalculate but I cannot figure it out.

How to recalculate Federal Tax withholding on a completed payroll for one employee?

Hi Wiesman!

 

It's a good thing that you haven't processed the paycheck yet. The change will take effect going forward, so I suggest editing the existing paycheck to apply the change in the Federal Withholding tax.

  1. From the Employees menu select the Employee center.
  2. Choose the Transactions tab and select Paychecks.
  3. Double-click the paycheck in concern and click the Paycheck Detail button.
  4. Deselect and re-select the items in the Earnings table to recalculate the Federal Withholding amount.
  5. Click OK.
