When will QuickBooks adjust local tax rates for 2022?

I'm wondering the same thing.  I have updated and no one seems to be able to give me an answer so my local taxes will be off by 1%.  Very frustrating.

Hi there, @jeffmsbc.

 

Thanks for posting here. It seems that you have some concerns with local tax rates for 2022. I'd be glad to know more about it so I can help you. 

 

You'll want to leave a comment below regarding the state you're in. That said, I'd also like to know if you have received a notice from the state agency. This way, we'll be able to provide the local state tax information in QuickBooks Online.

 

You can also find more information about adding local taxes through these articles:

 

 

Additionally, for you to take a closer look at your business and payroll information. I've added this article for your reference. This contains the list of payroll reports available in QuickBooks Online Payroll.

 

Keep on posting here if you need further assistance with taxes. We're always around for you. Have a great day.

I have received notice from my State agency it went from 0.13 to 0.14%. I have tried to go in and change the rate but QBs tells me that I am unable to edit it.  I called support and they didn't know what to do either.  I called an accountant who informed me that they believe it has to be fixed on your end, but that didn't work either.  It's very frustrating.

Hi there, @GYanni.

 

Allow me to verify some information and help you from there.

 

Are you trying to change the local sales tax rate of your states? If so, you'll have to manually edit it from the Sales tax menu. Here's how:

 

  1. Click Taxes from the left menu, then select Sales tax.
  2. Select Sales tax settings.
  3. Choose the state agency you want to edit and click the Edit button.
  4. Then, change the tax rate from there.
  5. Click Continue.

 

However, if you're trying to make changes to the local tax rate for payroll, please follow the steps below:

 

  1. Click the Gear icon, then select Payroll settings.
  2. Select [State] local taxes.
  3. Change the updated local tax rate.
  4. Click Save

 

I'm adding this article for more guidance: Set up local taxes in Online Payroll.

 

Please feel free to leave a comment below if you're referring to something else or if you have any other questions. Have a good day.

Hi Mark.  It is not a sales tax.  It is our Maine Unemployment Assessment Rate.  It is the only payroll liability that I am unable to go in and change or edit.

When I get to the part where it indicates "company rate" it will not allow me to make any change to it indicating that it is set by the State tax table - which obviously has changed.  It makes no sense to me why this particular item will not allow me to edit it.  When I spoke with an agent I was told they didn't know either and that is where it was left because I couldn't understand the Rep.

Thanks for joining us here, @GYanni.

 

I'll share some information about changing the rates. You should be able to change rates in QBO. In your case, you'll want to perform some steps to fix the issue. Sometimes the browser you're using is full of frequently accessed page resources that can cause unusual responses. You'll want to access your account using a private browser or an incognito window. 

 

Here's how:

 

  • Press Ctrl Shift (Google Chrome).
  • Ctrl Shift (Firefox).
  • Control Option (Safari)

 

Once you're logged in, change the rate again. If you're able to update it. Go back to your default browser and clear your browser's cache to speed up the process and refresh the account. 

 

If you're getting the same result, you'll want to Contact Payroll Support so we can create a ticket for you and investigate further.

 

Feel free to also browse our content help to guide you in managing payroll-related tasks.

 

Please know that you're always welcome to swing if you have follow-up questions about payroll. I'll be here for you.

I suppose if I were an on line user that might work, but I only use 1 desktop computer in our office so I don't think clearing my cache is going to fix that issue.

I did contact payroll support.  1. They couldn't figure it out and 2. the person who spoke to me was clearly not trained as she kept putting me on long holds and then would come back and say I don't know...I'm not sure.

Hi there, @GYanni

 

Thanks for taking the time to follow up with us and letting us know that you're using QuickBooks Desktop. 

 

You can edit a Sales Tax Item's by:

 

  1. Going to the Lists menu, then choose Item List.
  2. Find the sales tax item you need to update.
  3. Right-click on the item, then click on Edit Item.
  4. Update information like the sales tax name, rate, and tax agency.
  5. Select OK.

 

If these were the steps you took before, would you mind sharing a screenshot of your error message when trying to change the rate? This way, I can get a better view of what's causing your issue. 

 

I also wanted to mention, depending on the error, you might need to create a new Sales Tax Item and use it going forward. Creating a new Sales Tax Item is easy. I've included some steps below to create a new item. 

 

  1. From the Type drop-down, choose Sales Tax Item.
  2. In the Sales Tax Name field, enter your preferred name for the tax item. It is advisable that you use the location of the tax for the name. Further information can be entered in the Description field.
  3. Enter the specific rate for the item in the Tax Rate (%) field.
  4. On the Tax Agency field, type the name of the collecting agency (set up as a Vendor). If the agency is not on the list yet, click on Add New to set it up.
  5. Select OK.

 

I'll be sure to keep an eye out for your reply and look forward to chatting with you soon. Take care!

I have Quickbooks online, I have received my new rate for 2022. 1.20 down to 1.10. When I go to where you would make any adjustments (Settings, payroll settings, and then to edit California) I can adjust my SUI and my ETT, but I can not see, nor adjust the SDI rate. Where do I adjust the rate or is it done automatically by QB?

I want to make sure this is taken care of for you, levittac.

 

QuickBooks Online automatically calculates the Disability Insurance (SDI) according to your state's rules where the rate and wage base limits are defined by them. Our program is compliant with your state rules and we're using the default rate. This is the reason why you're unable to adjust the SDI rate.

 

You can also check the article about California Payroll Tax Compliance to ensure compliance with your state regulations. 

 

Finally, sharing with you this article for some links about the payroll tasks in QuickBooks Online: QuickBooks Payroll help article hub.

Hi Charles. I'm here in Maine and QB support last week confirmed that it has not been updated for our state and a check of my payroll items to edit confirms this morning that it is still in flux.  I am unable to edit it and QB has not updated it.  Just FYI
