Federal tax in October was not withheld for employee. Sept was OK. I tried asking for a call back, but it won't let me me.-It says next available agent is Friday
Let me share with you some insights on how Federal Income tax is being calculated QuickBooks, jameshennessy3.
There are four factors we need to consider to ensure the program calculates the correct taxes. These are the following:
Number of allowances
Then, these are the possible reasons why it's not calculating:
Annualized salary exceeds the salary limit.
The gross wage of the employees is too low.
To isolate this issue, let's check the employee's profile if they're not set toDo No Withhold. Here's how:
Click theWorkers tab on the left and chooseEmployees.
Locate and click the name of the employee.
In thePaytab, click the pencil icon toEdit.
Verify each section fromPersonal infotoHow do you want to pay [employee]carefully. Please make sure to check theWhat are [employee] withholdings?section whereTax exemptionsfield can be found and your employee's W-4 information.
Verify the tax set up of your employees and correct them if necessary.
Once everything is all set, you'll need to delete their paycheck in thePaycheck Listwindow, then re-create them to reflect the changes. For the detailed steps, kindly refer to this article's Create paychecks in QuickBooks Online Payroll section: Create paychecks in online payroll.
