If the tax rate field allows you to enter a rate, QuickBooks may display a default value (for example, the common new employer rate for
state unemployment insurance). Be sure to change this to the rate applicable to your company as stated in the rate notice from your state agency.
See sample tax rate notices.
If the tax rate field has a drop-down arrow, the tax rate shown is the current state rate supplied by the QuickBooks tax tables. If you are not subject to the
rate, click the drop-down arrow and choose 0 from the list.
