Indiana county tax for multiple counties snafu

When our company's QB was set up, there were only a few employees, all from the same county.  The county tax was set up as {CountyName1}, and the tax type was "IN- Counties Tax".


As the company has grown we now have employees in different counties and we have had to create User-Defined payroll items for the other counties.  When we set up a new employee residing in CountyName2, etc., QB asks if that employee is subject to "IN-Counties Tax".  If we answer Yes, it adds {CountyName1} in addition to the user-defined county of residence.


We would like to get this straightened up and have all of the counties that we need as part of the IN-Counties Tax, but with their unique withholding percentages.  There is no way we can find to edit the payroll item type "IN-Counties Tax".  


We would appreciated any help that anyone can provide on this.

Indiana county tax for multiple counties snafu

I recognize the significance of including an alternative county and a distinct withholding percentage for the item in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT), Sparky6040.


Currently, the capability to add a different county in QBDT is unavailable, and you can only assign one percentage per item. Exploring third-party applications that provide options for different counties and percentages per item could be a viable alternative.


You can visit this link to look at applications: Apps for QuickBooks Desktop.


I can see the importance of having this option for your business. With that, I suggest sending feedback to our product developers so they can review it and might consider adding this in our future updates. Please refer to the steps below:
