I'm using Quick Books Pro 16 with basic payroll. I only need taxes tables for one state, not all 50. I need to have  basic payroll to have that only one state IL.


Thanks for bringing this situation to my attention,  camelectric.

Are you referring to the tax payments for other states that are showing as due on your end? I’m here to help you ensure that your state tax is set properly.

Here are the possible reasons your prompted with several state tax schedules:

  • Your Payroll tax table is not updated.
  • Employee’s payroll information show address from other states.
  • Payroll item is set for other states.

To fix this, let’s ensure to download your latest payroll tax table.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Employees.
  2. Choose Get Payroll Updates.
  3. Select Download entire payroll update.
  4. Click Update.
  5. Click Ok.

Once updated, kindly log off and log on from QuickBooks to make sure all payroll components are updated.

You can also run Payroll Checkup to review employee records, payroll item set up and wage and tax amounts. This would be very helpful in checking discrepancies with your payroll and tax calculations.

If you’re still seeing the different state tax schedules on your end, I’d recommend reaching out to our Payroll Support Team. A specialist would be able to further check on it via secured remote access.

Here’s how to contact us:

  1. Go to:
  2. Choose your QuickBooks Product.
  3. Select Payroll.
  4. Choose your type of Payroll Subscription.
  5. Click Payroll.
  6. Click on the View Contact Info button to see the support number.

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.
