Payroll is not taking taxes out of payroll check?

Payroll is not taking taxes out of payroll check?

I'll share some information about why payroll taxes are not deducting from your paychecks, @vandervoort1976.


There are various reasons why payroll taxes aren't calculating. Among these are:


  • The total annual salary exceeds the salary limit.
  • The gross wages of the employee's last payroll are too low.
  • Your payroll tax table is outdated.


Let's make sure your QuickBooks is in the latest version as well as your tax table. You can also review the employee's tax setup since it affects how QuickBooks calculates it.


Once done, please revert your employee's paycheck. This refreshes your payroll information to calculate the taxes on the transaction.


Here's how:


  1. Open your employee's Payroll Information.
  2. Right-click the name of your employee which is highlighted in yellow. 
  3. Select Revert Paycheck
