When you create a paycheck, enter a year-to-date transaction, or enter a
company liability adjustment in QuickBooks, you may notice that certain
flat-rate taxes (such as social security) have stopped calculating, or that the
tax amounts have increased or decreased. To see what numbers were used to
calculate the tax amounts, you can generate a payroll detail review report.
This report shows you the detail behind the calculation and can tell you if the tax
amount was manually overwritten, if the tax has reached a
