Regardless of how you have set up your employee defaults, you can customize the federal tax information for each employee. QuickBooks then prefills the information when you write a paycheck for the employee.

To do this task

  1. Click Employee Center.

  2. Click the Employees tab, if necessary.

  3. If the employee is already on the list, double-click the employee's name.


    If the employee is not yet on the list, click New Employee at the top of the list.

  4. Click the Change tabs drop-down list and choose Payroll and Compensation Info.

  5. Click the Taxes button.

  6. Enter the filing status, allowances, and extra withholding from the information on the employee's Form W-4.

  7. In the Subject to section, be sure that the federal taxes that apply to this employee are selected (including taxes that you owe on the employee's behalf).

  8. Do one of the following:

    • To continue entering tax information, click either the State or the Other tab.

    • If you have no more tax information to enter, click OK to return to the New or Edit Employee window.
