Thanks for taking to time to share your concern here in the Community, Blueorca.

 

Let's start by setting up an additional work location in your company file. This ensures the payroll taxes are correctly managed. Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon and then Payroll Settings.
  2. In the Company and Account section, select Work Locations.
  3. Select Add a Work Location.
  4. Enter the work location address.
  5. Select Save.

 

Once done, assign employees to a new location. I'll guide you how.

  1. Go to the Payroll menu and then select the Employees tab.
  2. Select the employee's name, then click to open.
  3. Select Work location and enter the correct location.
  4. Select Done.

 

For more information about the process, I suggest checking this article: Set up and Assign a New Work Location.

 

As for paying the taxes, I recommend browsing this article to learn how payroll taxes are properly calculated: Multistate Withholding Matrix.

 

To learn more about working in different locations, please see this article to be guided: Multistate Employment Payroll Situations.

 

Additionally, I suggest visiting our Webinars and Events page for reference. From there, you can watch pre-recorded webinars that can guide you in completing your future task.

 

I encourage reaching out to us if you have other payroll-related concerns. We're here to help you out.

I have a basic $25 plan.

Does that mean I have to upgrade to a premium?

 

Also, I don't have any employees. And I can be doing work in 2 states the same day, since I live on the state boarder.  I just need to to save invoice transactions for each state somehow

You may need to upgrade to QuickBooks Online Plus or Advanced, Blueorca.

 

You can set up locating tracking to categorize data from different locations, offices, regions, outlets, or departments of the same company. This feature lets you see all the payments for one location and deposit them as a group.

 

Turn on location tracking

  1. Click the Gear icon, then select Account and Settings.
  2. Select Advanced.
  3. In the Categories section, select the Edit icon.
  4. Select the checkbox to track locations.
  5. Select Save, then Done.

Add a location

  1. Click the Gear icon, then select All Lists.
  2. Select Locations.
  3. Select New, then add the Name of the location you want to track.
  4. Select Save and close.

Here's an article you can read for future reference: Learn how QuickBooks Online calculates sales tax.

 

Keep me posted for additional questions or other concerns. I'd be more than happy to help.
