Transit tax liabilities

Hello.

We are having trouble with payroll adding the lane county and trimet transit tax to our paychecks.

We have deleted the items from the tax liabilities list, but it keeps showing up as if we need to pay these transit taxes.

Is there any way to delete these liabilities from showing up??

Hey there, @Oregonuser4260.

 

Are you referring to Payroll Item List when removing these items in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll? 

 

If so, deleting them won't remove the transit taxes from the Pay Taxes & Other Liabilities list. Since you have created paychecks using these payroll items, they will automatically show as part of your liabilities even they are already inactive. 

 

However, you can create a liability adjustment to remove them from the liability list. For more details, follow the steps in this link: Adjust payroll liabilities in QuickBooks Desktop

 

Once done, delete the payroll item that was assigned to your employee. This way, it won't show on their paycheck once you run a payroll.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Employees menu and select double-click the name of the employee.
  2. Select Payroll Info and click Taxes.
  3. Go to the Other tab and delete the payroll item.
  4. Click OK to confirm.

In case you want a quick view of your payroll totals, including employee taxes and contributions, run the Payroll Summary report to see what you've paid out.

 

Let me know if you need further assistance with this. I'm always around to provide answers and clarifications to your questions. Have a great day ahead and take care.

Hello Reymond.

Yes we managed to get the liabilities deleted. The other problem we were having was that the liabilities we still being calculated in the quarterlies.

We figured out that we needed to delete the lane county and trimet taxes in each employees paycheck, since we had to enter them in manually after switching from another payroll program.

Thank you for the help. It is greatly appreciated!!!!
