Chapter 2. Setting Up and Using Payroll ... > Setting Up Employee Payroll Taxes

Setting Up Employee Payroll Taxes

After you've set up the basic personal and payroll information for an employee, you need to enter information about payroll taxes. Your employees will each fill out a W-4 form (Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate) and a comparable state tax information form, providing information about marital status, dependents, and more.

Set Up Federal Payroll Tax Information

If the Edit Employee or New Employee window is still open on your screen, you can skip to step 6. Otherwise, select Employee List from the Lists menu.

Click the name of the employee for whom you want to set up payroll tax information.

Press Ctrl+E to edit the employee information.

Click the drop-down arrow to display the Tabs list.

Select Payroll And Compensation Info.

Click the Taxes button.

Make sure the Federal tab is selected.

Enter the Filing Status for this employee, based on W-4 information.

Enter the number of allowances the employee is claiming, based on W-4 information.

Indicate any extra withholding the employee has requested on the W-4 form.

Check all federal withholding options that apply to this employee.
