Is there a way to set up payroll items to not be subject to Oregon WBF, such as pay for incentive or sick time cash out?

Hi there, lpfireadmin.


We can edit the payroll item through the Employee Center page. Let me guide you how:


  1. In the Employee Center, double-click on the employee's name. The Edit Employee window opens.
  2. Click the Payroll Info tab.
  3. Click the Taxes button to display the Federal, State and Other tabs.
  4. Click the Other tab and click the OR WBF tax.


I've added this link for more information: Set up or change Oregon Worker Benefit Fund (OR WBF).


I'm just a post-away if there's anything that I can help. Keep safe!

We have this set up, but need to exclude some payroll items from it.  Is there a way to do that?

Hey there, lapine. 


Thanks for dropping by the Community today. my recommendation would be to reach out to your accountant/ProAdvisor for advice and recommendation on how to exclude specific payroll items. They will be able to give you specific details pertaining to you and your business, as well as what are the best items to exclude. If you don't currently have an accountant or ProAdvisor, you can check out our Find a ProAdvisor tool, click here and enter your information, it will show you local ProAdvisors in your area that are tax professionals as well as certified experts in QuickBooks. 


If you have any other questions, feel free to post here anytime. Thanks and I hope you have a lovely day.

Hope you found your answer. I had same scenario. So, when you setup new payroll item using custom setup and reach to the step as shown in attached Picture.....

(1) If you select "Sick Pay" than QB will NOT subject those Hours to Oregon WBF.

(2) If you choose "Regular Pay" and later name it (Example) Hourly Sick Pay, than QB will Subject the hours to WBF.

Note: If you use # (1) QB will not track the Sick Accural.  You will have to track those by VIEWING /GENERATING Payroll Summary for a period needed for that employee
