Edit payroll items

You may want to change a payroll item for any of the following reasons:

  • Your company is assigned a new rate for state unemployment tax.

  • The annual limit for a retirement plan deduction changes.

  • Your health insurance rates increase.

  • Your accountant wants you to assign an item to a different liability or expense account.

What the changes affect

If you're using Assisted Payroll, you cannot change the tax tracking classification or taxability of payroll items since the payroll service files your tax forms based on these items. If you need to change this information, you must Go online contact the payroll service.

However, on receipt of a notice from a taxing authority, you can and should change your company's rate for state unemployment tax or any other tax rate that varies by company. You can also change any information that does not affect tax amounts or tax forms.

To do this task

  1. Go to the Lists menu and click Payroll Item List. Shortcut

  2. Select the item you want to change.

  3. Click the Payroll Item button and then click Edit Payroll Item.

  4. Click Next in the Edit Payroll Item wizard until you find the window you want and make the necessary changes.

    Note: You cannot change the type of the item. For example, you can't change a payroll item marked as an Addition to a Deduction.

  5. Click Finish to record your changes.
