Enter miscellaneous state or local payroll tax information (individual employees)

Regardless of how you've set up your employee defaults, you can customize the miscellaneous state and local tax information for each employee. QuickBooks then uses this information when you write a paycheck for the employee.

You need an "other" tax payroll item for each miscellaneous state or local tax.
