Employees and payroll

Thanks for your prompt response, @fortelawncare.


To fix this, make sure to set up (add) the employee's information by adding the worker on the Employees tab in the Workers menu first. You can then review and add the ID needed in the Payroll Settings.


Let me show you how:

  1. Go to Workers and then select Employees.
  2. Click Add an employee to add the CO employee.
  3. Provide the necessary details especially the tax information on the third and fifth (Payroll Tax Setup and Compliance) sections of the employee's personal details.

  4. Hit Done.


Once done, you can now go to the Payroll Settings and then select the Tax Setup tab.


Let me show you how:

  1. Click the Gear icon on the top right.
  2. Select Payroll Settings.
  3. Go to the Tax Setup tab and then select Colorado.

  4. Review and add the ID needed.
  5. Once done, hit OK.


Well done! You've updated the CO state tax setup.


I'll add this article as your reference in setting up local Colorado tax in QuickBooks Online Payroll (QBOP): Local tax setup and support: Colorado.


Additionally, you can refer to this article for more details about paying and filing taxes in Colorado: Colorado Tax Compliance.
