Michigan 1017 and 1020
Why is my UIA 1017 blank?
Welcome to the Intuit Online Community!
I just reviewed the question that you posted and am happy to provide you with a solution.
The 1017 report in the Intuit Online Payroll Product will list out the Gross Wages Paid to an employee for the period selected in the product. So you will want to make sure that you have actually created paychecks that are dated within the Filing Period that you are selecting to run for the form. If you have actually created paychecks in the Intuit Online Payroll Product and your employees are assigned as working in and subject to taxes as being the state of Michigan than the information will carry over.
So you will want to first check that the filing period date that you are using includes the paycheck dates that you issued in the product. (For example: If you select First Quarter 2009 but your paychecks were dated on 4/1/2009 this information will not be reflected in the reports as it is based off of the paycheck date not the pay period associated with the paycheck). Your next step will be to go to your employee information and make sure that the Employee is Marked Subject to Michigan in the fields â€œState Subject to Withholding inâ€ and â€œState Works inâ€. If this is not the case this is the reason the information is not listed in the report when you create it.
Also if you started this payroll product in the middle of the quarter and have not entered in your Year to Date wages which will tell the program what the employees gross wages were prior to using the Intuit Online Product (only if you did not start using the product for all paychecks dated as of 1/1/2009 and on) this will be another reason as to why the information is not reflected in the report. So you would need to enter in year to date information in the product. I have included the steps on how below as well:
There is a question in the payroll setup process "Have you ever issued paychecks to employees?"
If Yes was selected, to set up the year-to-date information:
1. Click the Employees tab.
If you're using IOP for Accounting Professionals, you need to go to the client company first.
2. Select the employee, and then click Edit.
3. Click the Edit Year-To-Date Information or Setup Year-To-Date Information* button.
4. In the interview screen that appears, follow the steps to edit the year-to-date information for the employee.
*If this button is not available, when editing the employee:
1. Click the Employee added to Payroll checkbox.
2. Make sure that the Hire Date is not after the Payroll Start Date.
3. Click on Settings tab and choose Return to Payroll Setup and choose option 2 to change your choice to Yes.
