Payroll taxes not taken out

Let's check your employee's settings to calculate the taxes accurately, savoytj

Try to verify if your employee’s payroll taxes are being set to Do No Withhold. Here’s how:

  1. Go to your Workers tab, then Employees menu.
  2. Click the employee’s profile and tap the Edit employee button.
  3. On the page that appears, go to What are [employee name] withholding? and click the edit/pencil icon.
  4. Go to the number 3 of his/her W4 and make sure to set it up correctly.
  5. Tap on Done at the bottom to save this information.

I had a credit card replaced because of fraud and it was the one Quickbooks had on file.  I have updated the card and everything is normal on billing, but now the payroll does not withhold any taxes, fed, FICA, M/C or state.  How do I get the payroll program to work again?

Checked all employees and all have taxes set for withholding.  It still will not calculate withholding for federal, FICA, M/C, or state

Hi @Darrel D,

 

Let's see if we can figure this out.  Are you using QuickBooks Desktop or QuickBooks Online to process your payroll?  If it's Desktop, it may be that the tax table needs to be updated.  This article will walk you through how to download the latest tax table update:
