Change the rate for a miscellaneous state payroll tax

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.)

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

  2. Double-click the Other Tax payroll item created for the miscellaneous state tax.

  3. Click Next in the Edit Payroll Item wizard until you see the tax rate window.

  4. Enter the new assigned rate in the Company rate or Employee rate field.

  5. Click Next until you can click Finish.
