Changing the rate for a local payroll tax (or any user-defined tax)

A local tax is set up as an "other tax" payroll item.

The following instructions are for:

  • All user-defined taxes (that is, taxes set up as other tax payroll items but not chosen from the drop-down list of preset other tax payroll items).

  • IN Counties Tax, MI Cities taxes, OH School Districts Tax, and OR Worker's Benefit Fund (WBF) Assessment. (If there is a rate change for NY City or NY Yonkers City taxes, all you have to do is get a payroll update.)

You must edit each affected employee's record. You may also want to change the employee defaults so that new employees are set up with the new rate.

Editing an employee's record

  1. Go to the Employees menu and click Employee Center.

  2. To edit an employee record, in the Employees tab, double-click the employee's name.

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

  4. Click the Taxes button and click the Other tab.

  5. Select the tax that has a rate change.

  6. Enter the new rate for the tax.

  7. Click OK twice.

Editing the employee defaults

To edit the employee defaults, click Related Activities at the top of the list and click Employee Defaults.
