When an employee reaches the limit you defined for a payroll item, that
payroll item ceases to calculate on the employee's paycheck.
You define the limits for payroll items in two places: on the payroll item
itself and/or on the employee record. If you enter a limit in both places,
QuickBooks uses the lower of the two to determine when to stop calculating the
item for the employee.
If every employee has their own limit, you should avoid setting a limit for
the payroll item itself. If you already entered a limit on the payroll item,
simply delete it.
If there is only one possible limit for the item for all employees, you
should enter the limit on the payroll item only and not enter it on individual
employee records. That way you will avoid forgetting to update an individual
employee's record when the limit changes.
