Create a paycheck for employees that work in more than one state (multi-state)

An employee may work in more than one state during the course of his pay period.

Detailed instructions
If an employee works in more than one state per pay period, a separate check will need to be created, per state worked. QuickBooks Desktop does not currently have the option to pay an employee in one pay period for more than one state worked.
  1. Edit the employees records to determine which state they are setup for, change if necessary.
  2. Create a paycheck, based on hours worked, within the state they worked. That is, if they worked in state X for 20 hours, create a check for 20 hours against state X.
  3. Change the employee's state information to reflect the second state worked.
  4. Create a paycheck, based on hours worked, within the second state worked.
  5. Repeat as necessary to include each state worked within the same pay period.
