Employees and payroll

Thank you for joining the thread, @MCSO.


Be sure to update your payroll tax table to the latest release so QuickBooks will calculate payroll taxes correctly.


Here's how:


  1. Open your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT), then click on Employees at the top menu bar.
  2. Tap on Get Payroll Update from the drop-down result.
  3. Select the radio button beside Download entire payroll update, then click on the Update button.


If you have pending paychecks from the Enter Payroll Information window, right-click on the paycheck, then click on Revert Paycheck undo the changes. Once completed, re-enter the paycheck details to ensure taxes are calculated correctly.


For additional reference about this action, read this article: How to save or revert pending paychecks.
