Why do I need to merge payroll items for some of my taxes?

QuickBooks now has a payroll item type called Other Tax, which you can use to track your local taxes as well as miscellaneous state taxes. QuickBooks automatically creates some of these other taxes, such as California Employee Training Tax.

In previous versions of QuickBooks, you probably used deductions and company contributions to track your local taxes, which QuickBooks now displays in the Other Tax list. In order for QuickBooks Assisted Payroll to pay and report these taxes accurately, you must merge the payroll items that you previously used with the new item created by QuickBooks.

Important: Merging payroll items is irreversible. If you are unsure about merging payroll items while using Assisted Payroll, Go online contact QuickBooks Assisted Payroll.
