When I try to create an employee paycheck this week, no taxes are being withheld. Is there an easy way to fix this?

Hello there, storkenterprises.

 

If there are no federal taxes withheld, here are a few possible reasons: 

 

  • Total annual salary exceeds the salary limit.
  • The gross wages of the employees last payroll are too low.

You also have to make sure that the employees' profiles are set up correctly. QuickBooks calculates the federal withholding based on these factors:

 

  • Taxable wages
  • Number of allowances/dependents
  • Pay frequency
  • Filing status

Here's an article for more details: Payroll items on paycheck are not calculating or are calculating incorrectly.

 

If the employee should have taxes, let's get your QuickBooks Desktop updated to the latest release and tax tables. I've got these articles here for the instructions:

 

 

Then, process your payroll again and if the taxes are still not calculated, please contact our Payroll Support Team. Before doing so, please check out our support hours here: Support hours and types

 

Here are the steps:

  4. You can choose Message an Agent or Talk to a Specialist.

 

Let me know how the call went. I'm just a post away if you have any other questions or concerns. Thanks.
