Trying to set up deduction for local taxes. It will not let me as it says our zip code is not in area for transit taxes. Not true!

Read the answer regarding the Oregon state transit tax but am not sure why no deductions were made for the last quarter of 2017 and first of 2018.


Hi there, nankcarr,

Allow me to help you set up your transit tax.

Your report is the only one we received about the issue with the transit tax zip code. You can review the payroll wizard to make sure the local tax is set up correctly.

If the set up is right and still won't accept the zip code, you may need to call our phone support specialists. They have the resources to review your set up and can investigate further on what's causing the issue.

You can check our updated contact information here:

Additionally, please note that the Oregon Statewide Transit Tax will take effect on July 1, 2018, and will not start calculating on checks until such time. You may refer to this article for more information about the Oregon Statewide Transit Tax: Oregon Statewide Transit Tax 2018

Please update me if you have additional questions about Oregon taxes. I'll be around to help you, nankcarr.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
