It is important to update the tax tables in QuickBooks each time you pay employees. Intuit recommends you update the tables at least once every forty five days. The tax table is not automatically updated in QuickBooks at this point. Follow these steps to download the most current Tax Table within your QuickBooks software. An active payroll subscription is required – call our local QuickBooks trainer in your area if you have additional questions.
How to download the current payroll tax table from inside QuickBooks:
- Select Employees and then Get Payroll Updates. If you are using the Simple Start in QuickBooks, click on the icon labeled Payroll. Once inside the Payroll Center, select Set up and Maintain/ Get Payroll Updates
- Select the Download entire payroll update
- Now click on Update
- When you have completed the download, you should see a message indicating that your payroll tax form updates have been installed and/or that a new tax table update has been installed. Now click on OK.
