Enter miscellaneous state or local payroll tax information
(employee defaults)

If most of your employees are subject to the same miscellaneous state or local taxes, you can add those taxes to the employee defaults. QuickBooks then prefills the taxes when you set up the payroll records for individual employees.

You need an "other" tax payroll item for each miscellaneous state or local tax you add to your employee default setup. If the payroll item for the tax you want is not listed, click from the drop-down list. When you have set up the "other" tax payroll item, QuickBooks returns you to the Taxes window.
