Doing payroll while still waiting for State witholding taxID

Using assisted payroll.  Just hired a new employee this month..she's the first and only employee in IA.  I applied for an IA state witholding ID number, but they say I will receive it via snail mail in 4-6 weeks.  I need to do Dec payroll for this employee in a couple of days.  How do I handle this?  How do I setup the payroll items for Witholding and UI insurance when I don't have the ID #s yet?

Doing payroll while still waiting for State witholding taxID

Hi there, packetboy.


We'd want to make sure you're able to process payroll without a glitch. I would suggest contacting our Assisted Payroll Support so they can advice you what to do while waiting for your tax ID numbers. Here's how:


  1. Open this link:
  2. Select Assisted, then click Payroll.
  3. Click View Contact Info.

You can call them in between Monday to Friday, 6 AM to 6 PM PST. Visit us again in the Community if you have other questions with QuickBooks.
