Miscellaneous state tax rates are those that are set up from the drop-down list of preset other taxes.
Many miscellaneous state tax rates are the same for every company, and QuickBooks supplies these rates
in the tax table. When the state changes its rates, all you have to do is
get a payroll update with the current tax table.
If your state assigns different rates to different companies, and your
company's rate changes, edit the Other Tax payroll item for the tax after
issuing the last paychecks under the old rate.
(Exception: For an OR
Worker's Benefit Fund (WBF) Assessment,
edit the employee record, not the payroll
item, as for a local tax.)
Go to the Lists menu and click Payroll Item List.
Double-click the Other Tax payroll item created for the miscellaneous state
Click Next in the Edit Payroll Item wizard until you see the tax rate
Enter the new assigned rate in the Company rate or Employee
Click Next until you can click Finish.
