The answer provided does not work . My classes are already setup. The option to change the L&I rates is NOT offered in the Payroll Settings section where the WA SUI and FPML are available for update.
WHERE IS IT??? Can not update the class rates on the individual employee tab either.

Yes I did reach out to the payroll team through the online chat feature and I had three people help me. only one gave me the Email address which has been blocked out but it can be found in the end of year check list. I also found out my company will be charged $50 for the update that is impossible to do through the Quickbooks Online software. That seems like something that should be included with the Payroll Premium Plan my company pays for already. It also can take up to 21 days to complete.
This is absolutely ridiculous. It will let you edit the employee's rate class, but it won't allow you to update the actual rate that applies to that rate class. Which means, the first time you input a rate, you are stuck with that rate for that rate class forever. The rates change annually for each rate class. FIX THIS ISSUE.
